North Willingham is a village and civil parish located about 3.5 miles (5.6 km) south east of the town of Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, England, on the A631 road between Market Rasen and Louth. The village was mentioned in Domesday Book of 1086 when it was called "Wunlingeha" and it was recorded as having 57 households.[1]

The parish church is dedicated to Saint Thomas the Apostle and is a grade II listed building dating from the 14th century with later additions and alterations. The interior was restored in 1896, where there is a 19th century octagonal font. Built into the west wall of the nave is the head of a 13th century grave slab, and in the chancel two freestanding crosses brought from Palestine after the First World War.[2] St Thomas became part of "Walesby Group of Parishes" in 1979, which also comprises:[3]

North Willingham Church of England School was built in 1850 and closed in 1949.[4]

Jessie Boucherett was a campaigner for women's rights. Daughter of Ayscough (sometimes Ayscoghe) Boucherett, High Sheriff of Lincolnshire, she was born at Willingham House in 1825, and died there in 1905 being buried at St Thomas church. The house was built in 1790 for the Boucherett family.[5]

During the second world war Willingham House became Camp 256, a Prisoner of War camp. It was a German work camp, where prisoners worked as labourers in the local area. Willingham House was demolished in 1976.[6][7]
