Bucknall is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is situated approximately 5 miles (8 km) west from Horncastle.

Bucknall's Grade II listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Margaret.[2] The west chancel of the church was restored in 1884 by James Fowler. The north nave and door, set within a later timber porch, are Early English gothic. The south nave is decorated gothic, and the font late Norman.[3] The pulpit was given to the church in 1646, and there exists a 1787 chalice, flagon and paten by John Wakelin and William Taylor.[4]

The village has an 18th-century Grade II listed rectory,[5] a small primary school, a nursing home, post boxes, a village hall, a small park and public footpaths.
