Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-

"The church of All Saints, erected in the 13th century, is a small building of stone of the Transitional, Early and Late Decorated and Perpendicular periods, consisting of chancel, clerestoried nave, aisles, north porch and an embattled western tower with stunted spire, containing a clock and 5 bells, each of which has an inscription; the earliest dates from the 15th Century and the others from 1613 and 1787 respectively:

the chancel retains a Transitional piscina and Norman sedilia in good preservation (c. 1160) and has a low window on the south side; the benches have good poppy head ends:

the font is a curious example of coarse Rectilinear work:

in the north aisle is an altar tomb with the alabaster effigies of a knight in armour and his lady, supposed to represent Richard de Buslingthorpe and Isabella (St. George ), his wife, through whom he acquired the manor of Wellingore:

there is a mural monument t.o one of the Wingfields dated 1575, and a brass to a member of the Ellis family, ob. 1637:

the church wa.s restored and a vestry built in 1878 at z cost of £1,637:

there are 209 sittings"

"A List And Brief Details Of Chapels In The Lincoln Circuits Past And Present" prepared by Colin Shepherdson (Revised October 2000)states that :-

"The Prims commenced preaching in 1821 and erected a chapel in the High Street in 1837. However the cause failed and the chapel was sold to the Wesleyans pre-1842.

The Wesleyan built a new chapel in front of the old one with the foundation stone being laid on the 7.7.1887 and the opening on the 5.10.1887. The foundation stone for a Sunday school was laid on the 15.5.1925.

The chapel dosed in 1993 and put up for sale. It is now in use as a store"

"The Viking Way is a long distance trail in England running 147 miles (237 km) between the Humber Bridge in North Lincolnshire and Oakham in Rutland ...

The Countryside Commission recognised the significance of the Viking Way as a high quality long distance walk linking other major routes in Eastern England, these being the Yorkshire Wolds Way at the northern end, the Hereward Way and Macmillan Way from Oakham and indirectly via the Hereward Way, the Jurassic Way from Stamford and the southern end of the Peddars Way from Thetford.

The first tower mill here, built in 1818, had three storeys and replaced a post mill on the same site.

It was later raised by a further three floors, probably in 1854. Milling ceased in the 1930s.

The plaque on the millstone reads :-

"2009 Welcome to Wellingore Windmill Field, the site of the Parish's former limestone quarry and working windmill. 

This structure commemorates the fundamental roles played by the quarry and the windmill in Wellingore's industrial and cultural history.

It also introduces a new role for this historic site.

The millstone was located at an old mill nearby and the supporting limestone blocks come from the quarry at Metheringham. 

The original 18th century windmill was a two storey building with five more floors added in 1854.

It was a working mill until the late 1930s and lost its sails during WWII when it was considered too much of a landmark for the Luftwaffe.

The quarry mined stone mainly for use in building and road repair.

It was closed, filled in and grassed over in the mid 1960s. 

The field belongs to the Parish and has been transformed into both a recreational amenity and a habitat in which local wildlife can thrive.

The Parish Council are most grateful for the generous financial donations from outside agencies and the hard work given freely by Parish residents, without which this project would not have been possible"
