St Martinís consists of aisled nave, chancel and western bell-cote, and largely dates from the rebuilding by R H Fowler in the early 1890s.

Made of greenstone with limestone dressings and slate roof, it is typical in style, design and materials of small country churches in the Wolds.

One of the piers, however, has characteristic Norman zig-zag decoration, and came from the now demolished church at Cawkwell.

Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states

"The church of St. Martin is a small edifice of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, small aisles and a western turret containing one bell.

The turret was restored in 1823, and in 1890-91 the chancel was entirely rebuilt by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, and in 1893 the nave was rebuilt at a cost of £800, under the supervision of Mr. Reginald H. Fowler, architect, of Louth"
