The rough embattled tower of St Peterís is from the Early English period. Some masonry in the south wall is Norman.

The rest of the church has seen many alterations, with both chancel and north aisle rebuilt in the 19th century.

This is the original toll bridge of 1832 built over the Trent at Dunham linking Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.  It is of bowstring type, designed by George Leather.

The bridge was replaced by a modern concrete structure in 1979, but it remains in local ownership.
