On the A46 between Caistor and Grimsby, St Nicholas's church in Cabourne has a Norman tower, western doorway and font.

There is a surviving Early English lancet window in the chancel though most of the windows date to a Victorian restoration.

The tower of St Nicholas's dates from the eleventh century (with typical twin bell openings) but has been extensively rebuilt and restored over the years.
