Brocklesby is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated south from Habrough, south-west from Immingham, close to the border of both North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire, and near Humberside International Airport.

According to the 2001 census it had a population of 124.

The parish includes the settlement of Limber Parva (or Little Limber) which lies to the south-west, and is the site of a deserted medieval village, defined by earthworks and crop marks of crofts, hollow ways and rectilinear enclosures.

Newsham Abbey was located to the north of the village in the hamlet of Newsham, now part of Brocklesby civil parish.

Brocklesby has a railway station platform and buildings which are now private property. The nearest railway station in current use is at Habrough.

Brocklesby Grade II listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to All Saints. It holds memorials to the Pelham family, particularly Charles Pelham, Lord Worsley, who was killed during the First World War.
