The village has a rich history and is mentioned in the Doomsday Book.  Today, Benington Parish has much agricultural land within its boundaries and the vegetable growing industry is a prominent part of daily village life.

The features of Benington include All Saints’ Church which is now redundant and no longer open to the public.  Benington Community Heritage Trust has since been formed and work has begun for the building to become a community and events centre.  The churchyard is still in current use and is overseen by Butterwick with Benington PCC. 

There are four almshouses in the village which were built in the 19th century and are occupied by pensioners of Benington and Leverton.  Benington has a Village Hall and a Public House.  The largest employer is TH Clements who grow and distribute vegetables all over the country.  Bell Brothers Nursery and the Bells Nursery Outlet are  also local businesses.

Benington Parish Council has five councillors and the council meet most months on a Monday evening.  The Parish Council is elected to serve the residents of the village and welcomes ideas and suggestions from the local community.
