North Lincolnshire is a unitary authority area in the region of Yorkshire and the Humber in Englandmarker. For ceremonial purposes it is part of Lincolnshiremarker.

The council area lies on the south side of the Humber estuarymarker and consists mainly of agricultural land, including land on either side of the River Trent. It borders onto North East Lincolnshiremarker, Lincolnshiremarker, South Yorkshiremarker, Nottinghamshiremarker and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Before the creation of Humberside in 1974, it was part of Lincolnshire, only becoming North Lincolnshire in 1996 on the abolition of Humberside. Until 1 April, 1996, the area had been part of Humberside. The district was formed by a merger of the boroughs of Glanfordmarker and Scunthorpemarker, and southern Boothferrymarker.

There are three significant towns: Scunthorpemarker (the administrative centre), Briggmarker and Barton-upon-Humbermarker.
