Londonthorpe is a satellite village of Grantham, in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is in the civil parish of Londonthorpe and Harrowby Without. It lies 3 miles to the north-east from Grantham, 1 mile to the west from the B6403 (Ermine Street Roman road), and borders on Belton Park in the west.
he parish church is dedicated to St John Baptist, the tower of which dates back to the early 13th century, and parts of the rood screen from the 15th century. The church was rebuilt with a new roof in 1850, with considerable further restoration taking place in 1879.
The parish also includes Prince William of Gloucester Barracks (previously RAF Spitalgate) and parts of eastern Grantham, particularly Alma Park Industrial Estate.
During the 1930s the parish was a centre for the Land Settlement Association scheme, a social experiment where unemployed Durham miners were offered specially built cottages with smallholdings of land and livestock, to encourage self-sufficiency.
