Claxby Pluckacre is a hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) south-east from the town of Horncastle. It is in the civil parish of Wood Enderby.

Whilst Claxby Pluckacre is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book, today it is considered a deserted medieval village with slight earthworks visible between Hall Farm and The Grange.[1][2]

Claxby Pluckacre once had a church dedicated to Saint Andrew, which fell down in 1748[3] and was never rebuilt. The last priest was instituted 1660-62.[4] Whilst nothing remains it can be seen as earthworks.[1]

Each year, in July, there is an annual pilgrimage to the site of St Andrew's Church. The Mareham le Fen Victory Silver Band provides the music for a service which commemorates the over 250 villages and hamlets lost in Lincolnshire over the past four centuries.[citation needed]
