The Romans founded a settlement probably called Ad Abum in this area. It was where Ermine Street, the major Roman road between Londinium (London) and Lincoln, terminated on the south bank of the Humber. Travellers then crossed the river by way of a ferry or low-tide ford to Petuaria (Brough) on the north bank where Cade's Road continued on to Eboracum (York) and Hadrian's Wall. A pre-Roman ridgeway, called Yarlesgate or Earlsgate, may have also resumed here on its route south and south-west towards the Midlands and South West England.
The Michelin Star Winteringham Fields restaurant is situated near the centre of the village. There is one public house, the Bay Horse at West End. In High Burgage is a corner shop and a post office. In Low Burgage is the local Methodist 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.
