Elsham is a village and civil parish in North Lincolnshire, England. It is situated north from Brigg, north from the M180 and west from the A15 road.
The A15 (built in 1978) traverses the old runways of the former RAF Elsham Wolds airfield. Close to the village is Elsham Hall.
Elsham Grade II* listed Anglican church, dedicated to All Saints, is of 12th century Early English origin. It was restored in 1874.
At Elsham there was an Augustinian priory; it was dissolved during the 1536 Suppression.
The village is the birthplace of the agricultural engineer Richard Hornsby, astronomer Wallace L. W. Sargent, and George Green, a recipient of the Medal of Honor in the American Civil War.
