The Cathedral of the Marsh

A 14th-and 15th-century church with Norman origins, All Saints is known as the Cathedral of the Marsh – a testament to its impressive length and spacious light-filled interior, as well as the quality of the interior carvings.

Despite it's lonely grandeur, the outside of the church has a colourful appearance as the local north Lincolnshire greensand is patched with brick and limestone.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
