Nettleham is a large village parish within the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.

The manor of Nettleham was owned in the eleventh century by Queen Edith, wife, later widow, of Edward the Confessor.

Its parish church of All Saints dates from the Saxon period, with later medieval and 19th century additions. It is now in the benefice of Nettleham with Riseholme and Grange de Lings.

From 1081 until 1219 the Church was owned by the Abbey of Evroult, Normandy.

In 1101 the manor of Nettleham was given by the King to the Bishop of Lincoln and became the location of the Bishops' Palace until about 1585. The remains of this palace can be seen next to the Methodist Chapel to the west of All Saints Church.

Nettleham forms part of the Gainsborough parliamentary constituency.

Nettleham has won the "Best Kept Village Award" several times.
