Bucknall is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is situated approximately west from Horncastle.

It is claimed that Lady Godiva was born here, largely based on the view of her brother Thorold, Sheriff of Lincolnshire, who was known as "Thorold of Bucknall".

Bucknall's Grade II listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Margaret. The west chancel of the church was restored in 1884 by James Fowler. The north nave and door, set within a later timber porch, are Early English gothic. The south nave is decorated gothic, and the font late Norman. The pulpit was given to the church in 1646, and there exists a 1787 chalice, flagon and paten by John Wakelin and William Taylor.

The village has an 18th-century Grade II listed rectory, a small primary school, a nursing home, post boxes, a village hall, a small park and public footpaths.
