Barlings includes the Grade II listed church of St Edward the Confessor, and Grade I listed Barlings Abbey ruins. Other listed buildings include a hall, house and farm house. Part of the parish was once a medieval deer park.
There are no standing remains of Barlings Abbey but the main building outside the monastic church has been interpreted as a detached monastic household such as the abbot's lodging. This building was reformed as a post-Dissolution secular residence of Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, who used it as a vice-regal palace. Brandon was King Henry VIII's vice-regent in Lincolnshire in the wake of the Lincolnshire Rising.
