Grade I listed.
Nettleham church dates from the 13th century onwards and was restored in 1889. Its origin is probably late Saxon. The Manor of Nettleham, including the church, was owned in the 11th century by Queen Edith, wife of Edward the Confessor. In 1101 the Manor of Nettleham was given to the King by the Bishop of Lincoln and was the location of the Bishop's Palace until about 1585.

There is a western tower, nave with clerestory, north and south aisles, chancel with a former north Chapel which is now a vestry. The church is entered via a south porch.
The tower, which is of three stages dates from the 13th C. with a 15th C. battlemented parapet with crocketted pinnacles. There are six bells.
At the base of the tower there is a blocked 13th century arch.

The north aisle has 19th-century windows and a north door. The nave clerestory has three, 2 light windows.
The chancel was rebuilt in 1889 and has a five light east window which was renewed following a fire.
The south aisle has 14th century windows. The nave has the remains of a 13th century wall painting still visible.

The north and south arcades are of three bays, the easterly one is dating from the mid-13th century. The westernmost arches are early 13th century as is the chancel arch. Some of the capitals were probably carved by Cathedral craftsmen.
The chancel has a 14th century arch to the former north Chapel.
The nave roof is from the 19th C. although the south aisle has a 16th C. roof.
The font is a 19th-century copy of a mediaeval original.
The nave has two 18th-century candelabra.

In 1969 a fire destroyed the east window and caused major smoke damage. The window was replaced with one from John Hayward, 1973.
In the year 2000, a kitchen and toilet area were installed at the west end of the north aisle.
