Normanby by Spital is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 318. It is 12 miles (19 km) north of Lincoln just off the A15.

The name Normanby is from the Old English and Old Scandinavian Northman+by, or "Northman village". In the 1086 Domesday Book, the village is given as Normanebi.

Normanby by Spital also has a neighbouring village called Owmby by Spital.

St. Peter's Church dates from the 12th century and is a Grade I listed building.[1] It is redundant and maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust.[2] The church is dedicated to St.Peter and St.Paul. It was extensively renovated in 1890[3] and it currently seats 100 people. There was a Methodist chapel but now it has been converted into a habitable accommodation.

The village facilities include a primary school, a post office, a store, a pub called The Bottle and Glass and a school hall. The school hall holds activities such as a youth club and an art club.

On 27 March 2009, Anti - Vivisection activists set up camp close to the entrance to Highgate Rabbit Farm at Normanby by Spital, protesting against the farm's programme of breeding rabbits and ferrets for the vivisection industry, including Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). Everything was peacful on that day and nothing broke out; the activist's leader said that everything was 110% peaceful.

Normanby by Spital primary school got an Ofsted grade of outstanding in 2006. However, in 2010 the school's rating was "good".

During World War II, a wireless station was in operation along Normanby Cliff Road which was connected to RAF Scampton and was used to transmit messages to Bomber Squadrons over Germany or other enemy territory. Each Bomber Command Group had a similar site and they could be found all over the east of the country. The R/T operators were based at RAF Bawtry, Doncaster. This role continued throughout the "Cold War" period when transmisions were made to the 24/7 airborne V-Bomber squadrons. In later years this role diminished and the station finally closed, the buildings have now been demolished although the site is still fenced off. The Bottle and Glass pub was open for duration of the war (WW2), as it was a frequent rest-stop for local airmen. Residents of the village remember the Dambusters raid, hearing the Lancasters going overhead and being concerned that they were "struggling" to keep in the air.
