The peal, called 'The Brides of Enderby' was mentioned in the poem 'The High Tide on the Coast of Lincolnshire' written by local Victorian poet Jean Ingelow.

Grade II listed St Michael's was first documented in 1280 although most of the early Norman church has disappeared. There are however some 14th and 15th century features but the church was heavily restored by Victorian architect, James Fowler in 1875.

At the threshold of the west door is part of a coped 11th century grave slab and the remains of a 14th century churchyard cross stands proud in the graveyard. Well worth a mention is the Norman holy water stoop to be found in the porch, as well as the 14th century octagonal font set upon a Minton tile dias.
