It is situated about 4 miles (6 km) west from Spilsby, and about 5 miles (8 km) east from Horncastle. The village was a civil parish, but it now lies in that of Lusby-with-Winceby which had a population (including Hameringham) of 147 at the 2011 census.
The parish church is Grade I-listed and dedicated to St Peter. It is built in greenstone and dates from the 11th century, with 15th-century additions. It was further altered and reduced in 1893 by Ewan Christian, and in the 20th century an porch was added. A late 11th-early 12th-century grave marker is incorporated above the keystone of the blocked south doorway of the nave.
