Aswardby (pronounced "as-ard-bee") is a village situated north-west from Spilsby, in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies north of the A158 and west of the A16 roads.

Fr T. Pelham Dale, SSC, prosecuted and imprisoned for Ritualist practices in 1876 and 1880, and regarded a martyr by Anglo-Catholics, was the parish priest from 1881-1892.

Aswardby Hall was built approximately 1845, with further building works completed around 1910.

Aswardby should not be confused with Aswarby, which is also in Lincolnshire, but about south-west of Aswardby.
