Kirkby Underwood Grade I listed Anglican church is dedicated to St. Mary and All Saints.[4] In 1885 Kelly's Directory described the church as in Perpendicular style, with chancel, nave and south aisle, and a tower containing three bells. It was in a "very ruinous state". The parish register dated from 1569.[5]

The ecclesiastical parish is part of The Ringstone in Aveland Group of the Deanery of Beltisloe. The incumbent is the Revd David Creasey.[6]

Between the village and Hawthorpe is Callan's Lane Wood, run by the Forestry Commission. Near the wood are two radio masts[7] and a BT microwave transmitter.[8]
