Nettleham is a large village and civil parish within the West Lindsey district of the county.

The parish church of All Saints dates from the Saxon period, with medieval and 19th century additions. It is welcoming with a friendly congregation.

Within the church's graveyard is a headstone in memory of Thomas Gardiner, a post-boy murdered hereabouts by two highway robbers in January 1733. The inscription declares he was 'barbarously murdered' aged 19.
