Hatton Wood, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), lies to the south-west of the village. It forms part of the Bardney Limewoods National Nature Reserve. Hatton Meadows, a nature reserve belonging to the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, lies to the north of Hatton Wood.

The National Transmission System has one of its twenty six compressor stations, driven by three gas turbines, just off the A158 west of the village at Hatton Bridge.
