St Margaret's is medieval in origin and built of Greenstone (or Spilsby Sandstone) like many of the churches in the southern part of the Wolds.

It was rebuilt in 1807, and restored in 1913 by H F Traylen, on both occasions using a considerable number of red bricks.

Charity board recording the bequest of Mrs Baker of Orsett Hall (Essex), 1848.

The connection between the Baker family and Waddingworth is uncertain. They appear not to have held land in the parish in the mid-nineteenth century.
