The West Riding of Lindsey was a division of the Lindsey part of Lincolnshire in England. It consisted of the north western part of the county, and included the Isle of Axholme and the Aslacoe, Corringham, Manley, Lawress and Well wapentakes.

The meeting place of the riding was Spital-in-the-Street.[1] At the time of the Domesday Book, the riding also contained Lincoln, although in 1409 the city became a county corporate. Other important towns included Gainsborough.
