Roughton is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.
The village lies about south of Horncastle and near the hamlets of Thornton and Kirkby-on-Bain. Since 1936 the hamlets of Dalderby and Martin have been part of Roughton civil parish.
The village was mentioned in Domesday book of 1086, when it had 11 households, and the Lord of the Manor was King William I.
The church dates from the 13th century, and is a Grade II* listed building dedicated to Saint Margaret. It is built of a "patchwork" of greenstone, limestone and red brick. There is the base of a medieval stone cross in the churchyard, which is both Grade II listed and an ancient scheduled monument.
Roughton Hall is a Grade II* listed building dating from the mid 18th century.
There was a school in Roughton, which served the village and the nearby hamlets of Haltham, Dalderby and Martin. It closed in December 1946.
