is a unitary authority area
in the region of Yorkshire and the Humber

The 846 km² council area lies on the south side of the Humber estuary and consists mainly of agricultural land, including land on either side of the River Trent. It borders onto North East Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire 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 Glanford and Scunthorpe, and southern Boothferry.
There are three significant towns: Scunthorpe (the administrative centre), Brigg and Barton-upon-Humber.
