Hameringham is an extended village in Lindsey, the northern part of Lincolnshire, consisting of High Hameringham and Low Hammeringham. It can be found four miles south-east of the nearest town, Horncastle.

The parish church, All Saints, dates from the year 1200, although heavily restored in 1893 by Hodgson Fowler after the nave collapsed. It is made from greenstone, brick, limestone and red sandstone and is a Grade II listed building .[1]

The parish belongs to the Fen and Hill Group of Parishes which also includes the churches in[2] Mareham le Fen (St Helen), Mareham on the Hill (All Saints), Revesby (St Lawrence}, Scrivelsby (St Benedict) and Wilksby (All Saints).

The Thatched Cottage is a Grade II listed late 18th-century mud and stud thatched cottage.[3]

Dunsthorpe

Dunsthorpe was a village, now deserted and disappeared, which was located near the present Hameringham Grange. The church was in ruins by 1421 and in 1437-08 the parishes were united to become Hameringham. Bones have been found here.[4]
