The Prime Meridian passes to the west of Covenham St Bartholomew.

The Grade II listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Bartholomew.[2] The church is mainly in Decorated style, and formerly cruciform in plan before losing its north transept. It has a low central bell-tower. On the floor of the church is a monumental brass with an effigy of Sir John Skypwyth, 1415.[3] St Bartholomew's was repaired and re-seated in 1863[4] The manor of Covenham was an endowment to Covenham Priory, which itself was given by William I to the abbey of St Carileph at Le Mans. In 1303 the priory became unprofitable and was sold to Kirkstead Abbey.[3]

In the 19th century Covenham held Wesleyan, Primitive and Free Methodist chapels.[4]

Other Grade II listed buildings within the village are Haith's Farm House[5] and Mill House.[6]

To the north-east of the village is a large reservoir with public access.[citation needed]
