Cuxwold Grade II* listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Nicholas.[1] The church, of 11th-century origin but with an incorporated earlier Saxon tower arch, was considerably restored and rebuilt in 1860 by James Fowler.[2][3] The restoration was carried-out under instruction from Henry Thorold, who, in the 1870s, added a monument to his family within the church.[1] Within the village is a further Grade II listed building, Cuxwold Hall, built in 1860.[4]

Cuxwold was the location of an emergency landing ground for airplanes during the Second World War and is now the home of Grimsby Airfield.[5]
