Temple Bruer is in a farm-yard in the civil parish of Temple Bruer with Temple High Grange, North Kesteven, Lincolnshire, England. It is one of the few Knights Templar sites left in England where any ruins remain standing. Its name comes from its Templar ownership and its position in the middle of the Lincoln Heath, bruyère (heather) from the French language current at the time. It was founded in the period 1150 to 1160 and the order was dissolved in 1312.

It is at grid reference , located between the A15 and A607 roads, north from Cranwell. The site has been excavated twice, once in Victorian times and again at the start of the 20th Century.[1][2]
