The parish church, which was dedicated to Saint Andrew, was built in 1846 to replace an earlier thatched structure. It was declared redundant by the Diocese of Lincoln in 1990 and sold the same year. It is a Grade II listed building.
Claxby Manor House (also known as Claxby Hall) was built around 1760, reputedly for Samuel Dashwood as the Dower House to Well Hall. It later became the vicarage, and is a Grade II listed building.
What is now known as Claxby Manor House is an entirely different building situated across the valley.
