This octagonal brick butter cross was built c1700.

The building was later adapted for use as a dovecote, and more recently has been used as a village hall.

It stands uncomfortably close to the busy A16.

Lying above the village and built into the side of the Wold, St Michael's church, Burwell, is built partly in Spilsby sandstone and partly in brick.

It has a Norman chancel arch which is the oldest feature, Perpendicular (Georgian brick-topped) tower and signs of a vanished south aisle.

It is now in the hands of the Churches Conservation Trust.
