Scopwick is a small village, mid way between Lincoln and Sleaford in Lincolnshire, East Midlands,  England, with a population of about 1000. It is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as having a church & 6 mills. The name derives from Old English and was originally Scapeuic meaning the sheep farm.

The main village church, Holy Cross also contains the Commonwealth War Graves for the airmen from nearby RAF Digby, including that of the young World War II poet and aviator John Gillespie Magee.

Just to the west of the village lies the brick tower of Scopwick Tower Mill, which was built in 1827 and fell into disuse around 1912. It has recently been renovated into a private dwelling.
