Kelly's Directory 1930 states "The church of St. Peter, originally founded in 1231, and rebuilt in 1842, at a cost of £800, is a structure of brick, in the Early English style, consisting of chancel and nave, west porch and an embattled western tower of red brick, with four pinnacles and containing 3 bells :

in 1904 a memorial window was placed in the south aisle to the Rev. Henry Owen B.A. rector of this parish 1859-87 :

there is also a window inserted in 1911 by the present rector to his wife and another one inserted in 1916:

in the porch is a stone with an inscription asking the prayers of the faithful on behalf of Richard Wright, who built the porch in 1522, his wife and family :

the tower bears the date 1606"

The doorway in the west face of the tower is 'debased Gothic' according to Pevsner.

This eight-storey mill, by Saunderson of Louth, was one of the last to be built in the county (1882).

It was fitted out with machinery from a demolished mill in Hull.

"It was erected to replace a post mill in 1880-81 and originally stood at Newland, near Hull.

Mr Charles Foster bought it, demolished it and shipped everything but the bricks around to Mablethorpe where it was incorporated into a new tower.

The post mill was demolished and replaced in 1901 when a new tower mill replaced it.

The new tower mill lasted until 1935 and was then converted to a house, being only three storeys high by this time"
