Glentworth is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately north from the centre of the city and county town of Lincoln, and just over south-west from Caenby Corner.

The name Glentworth comes from the Old English glente+worth or heopa+hamm for "enclosure frequented by birds of prey". In the Domesday Book it is noted as "Glentewrde".

The Church of England parish church of Saint Michael dates from three periods, as shown by the varied masonry of its outside walls. The oldest part is the Anglo-Saxon tower. The middle section of the present church is the product of Georgian and Victorian rebuilding. Its eastern end, with its rougher stonework, is largely Elizabethan.

Glentworth is the site of Glentworth Hall, an Elizabethan country house built by Christopher Wray.

Villagers construct scarecrows for an annual themed 'Glentworth Scarecrows' competition event.
