Lying half a mile north of Dorrington village centre, the church of St. James and St. John has a severe ashlar-faced tower.

Most of the church is from the Decorated period whilst the nave clerestory is Perpendicular.

A 13th century sculpture of the Last Judgement can be seen outside, above the east window.

Sleaford Rural District Council was well in advance of the times when it erected the water tower at Dorrington in 1910.

Few small communities in rural Lincolnshire had such a good and reliable water supply at the time.

The tower remains in good condition though it is no longer in use.
