St Mary's West Butterwick is a Victorian Church which was originally a chapel-of-ease of St Martin's Owston Ferry. It has a particularly fine East window which was restored in 2008 and is now fully visible for the first time in forty years. West Butterwick is on the west side of the Trent south of Scunthorpe. It stands next to the Church of England Primary school which has strong links with the church.
