The Romans had a settlement here probably called Ad Abum. The Roman road Ermine Street from London and Lincoln to the south crossed the Humber here by way of a ferry or ford to Brough, and from there continued to York. The pre-Roman ridge way also resumed here, called Yarlesgate or Earlsgate, on its route south and south-west towards the Midlands and South West England.
The village, and its neighbour Winterton to the south, were possibly named after the first King of Lindsey - Wintra - though there are several other theories. By the time of Domesday it was a prosperous place with three mills, a fishery and a ferry.
The former Michelin Star Winteringham Fields restaurant is situated near the centre of the village, owned by Great British Menu 2012 winning chef Colin McGurran. There are two public houses: the Bay Horse at West End and the Ferry Boat Inn in High Burgage. In High Burgage is a corner shop and a post office. In Low Burgage is the local chapel, on a road which leads to Winteringham Haven. On Market Hill, off High Burgage, is the local primary school (Winteringham Primary School), on School Road.
Winteringham is also approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) from a wildfowl refuge on the River Humber while also being approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) from the Winteringham Haven Wildlife Reserve.
