Winteringham is a village of approximately 350 houses which stands on the south bank of the River Humber about 8 miles from Barton-upon-Humber and the Humber Bridge. There are 791 votes listed in the Register of Electors for 2008.
The village dates back to Anglo Saxon and Norman times and Ermine Street forms a boundary for the village. It is known that the Roman Legions forded the river at this point. Later this was a busy market town and even had its own ship building yard although now there are no remaining signs of this industry and the Haven is used by the Humber Yawl Club for its south bank base.
There is a Primary School in the village and the Village Hall is used throughout the week by the Nursery School and School's Out Club. Other organisation use the hall as their base including the Parish Council and the W.I.
The Village Hall is situated on South Side, adjacent to the large playing field. On the field an All Weather Sports Facility, a childrens play area and a large grass area for ball games can be found.
Within the village there are a Church and Methodist Chapel, an excellent butcher's shop and a village store/Post Office. There are two public houses which provide entertainment and food and also the worldwide renown Winteringham Fields, "a restaurant with rooms". Guests come from far and wide to partake of the excellent cuisine.
The village is surrounded by arable land but horses, cattle and sheep can be seen grazing locally. The views across the Humber are stunning and along the Humber banks can be seen a wide variety of wild life and birds - some of which can not be seen anywhere else int his country.
