There are two primary schools - Chestnut Street School and Winchelsea Primary School, and one secondary school - St George's Academy. There is a rail station, which is on the Peterborough to Lincoln Line. The village is notable for its parish church called All Saints (picture below) as well as its 'beck', a stream which runs through the village including the high street. The Ruskington Beck (picture above and below) splits the high street into High Street North, a two way road, and High Street South, a one-way service road.
