The parish church of St Wilfred is a Grade I listed building.

During World War II, in 1943, the BBC built a transmitting station there, named BBC Ottringham or OSE5. Its purpose was to counter the increase in German jamming signals, and to broadcast propaganda into Germany. Following the end of the war, and with lack of funds, the station was deconstructed in 1953 and its transmitters moved to Droitwich.

In 1958 a Ham class minesweeper HMS Ottringham was named after the village.
