The cruciform church of All Saints was rebuilt in 1861,[1] replacing one of medieval origin. The Grade II listed building was converted to a private house and renamed Old Church House in 1966.[2] It has been disused since 1973.[citation needed] A further listed building is a farm cottage on Green Lane.[3]

At the south of the village are the earthwork remains of Cold Hanworth medieval village. This settlement was established in the 11th century but abandoned by the 18th.[4]

Cold Hanworth Forge is a working forge and blacksmithing school.[5]
