Memorial village pump

The parish church is a Grade I listed building, dedicated to Saint Botolph, dating from the 13th century. The font is 13th-century. There is a gravestone to a rector of the parish, who died in 1413, set in the chancel floor. The church is now redundant.[4]

Saltfleet has a Grade II listed 19th-century windmill.[5] There are two public houses; the New Inn is a Grade II listed building, dating from the 17th century,[6] and The Crown Inn, which is over 200 years old.[citation needed]

Opposite the New Inn is the Manor House, built in 1673, a date referred to inscribed against the names of Robert Fox and Jane Hardy in a first floor room.[7] Lincolnshire Life magazine published articles on the Manor House: in February 2008 in its Homes and Gardens page; in May 1970; and during the 1960s when it mentioned former occupants including the 1670s owner, Lord Willoughby, a friend of Oliver Cromwell.[citation needed]

Adjacent to the Manor House is a red brick Methodist chapel dating from 1815.[8]

A listed limestone village pump was erected in 1899 in memory of F. A. Freshney who died from wounds inflicted while fighting in South Africa.[9]

Nearby is Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe Dunes National Nature Reserve.[10]
