Lyneham Camp or The Roundabout is a former Iron Age hill fort about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) northeast of the village beside the A361 road. It was excavated in 1956. About 250 yards southwest of the hill fort is Lyneham long barrow, which was excavated in 1894. The barrow is of Cotswold-Severn type (NGR SP299175, OXF 6) and contains two chambers. Northwest of the barrow is a standing stone that it is believed was originally part of the barrow.
Lyneham was a chapelry of the Church of England parish of Saint Mary, Shipton-under-Wychwood until 1895. It was then transferred to the parish of Saints Simon and Jude, Milton-under-Wychwood. The church of Saint Michael and All Angels was built in Lyneham in 1907. It was a corrugated iron building, colloquially called "tin tabernacle". It ceased to be used for worship early in the 1970s and was demolished in 1975.
