Winteringham stands on the south bank of the River Humber about 8 miles from Barton and the Humber Bridge. .
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 founded a settlement probably called Ad Abum in this area, due to Ermine Street, the main Roman road between Londinium (London) and Lincoln terminating here, on the south bank of the Humber. The Legions forded the River Humber at Winteringham to Petuaria (Brough) on the North Bank.
It is thought that the name Winteringham is derived from one of the Kings of Lindsey - Winta. Winteringham = The Homestead of Winta's people and Winterton = the farm/village of Winta's people
In later years, Winteringham was a busy market town and even had its own ship building industry although now there is no sign of this industry and the Haven is used by the Humber Yawl Club for its south bank base.
Within the village there are a Church and Methodist Chapel, an excellent butcher’s shop and a thriving village store and Post Office. There is a public house (The Bay Horse Inn) which provides entertainment and serves food and, also situated within the village is the worldwide renowned, Winteringham Fields, “a restaurant with rooms”, People come from far and wide to partake of its excellent cuisine.
