The 15th century font in All Saints' church is decorated with traceried panels and emblems of the Passion. Presumably it came from the town's earlier medieval church.

Wainfleet was the birthplace of William Waynflete, who became Bishop of Winchester and Chancellor of England in the 15th century.

Wainfleet School was founded in 1484 by Waynflete as a feeder school for his other foundation, Magdalen College Oxford.

This fine red brick building was in continual use as a school until the 1980s; it now houses the local museum and library.
