On the banks of the River Steeping

Wainfleet All Saints stands on the banks of the River Steeping and it has a remarkable history.

Bateman's Brewery

From miles around you can see the unique 'bottle beer' weather vane of Bateman's Brewery, established in the town nearly 130 years ago. This is a family-run brewery, famous nationwide for its award-winning real ale. Take a look in the Visitors' Centre and explore the progression of the ale and see one of the biggest collections of bottled beers in the world.

Magdalen College

Nearby, the medieval Magdalen College School houses a museum, library and café. William Patten known as William of Waynflete, who was born in the town in 1395, founded this awe-inspiring building. Having founded the Magdalen College at Oxford, the school was established to provide scholars for the Oxford College.

John Wesley & Butter Cross

In the Market Place stands a medieval Butter Cross where John Wesley, founder of the Methodist movement preached.

Bethlem Trust

Perhaps the most unusual group of buildings in the town are the row of houses in Barkham Street. Built in 1847 for the Bethlem Trust, these three-storey terraced rows are similar in style to those built for the Trust in London, but here, no effort was made what so ever to style them to fit in with the surroundings in this small Lincolnshire town.

Cycling and Walking

A series of way-marked cycle and walking routes in and around Wainfleet give you the opportunity to explore all around this interesting area.
