A quiet Domesday church

This is a lovely church on an ancient site, lying away from the village on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds as they slope down to the Humber.

From early origins shown by a Saxon window, with a unique carving of a cat above it, down to delightful early 19th-century furnishings.

There is evidence of a north aisle from arcading in the church, indicating that the building was once much larger.

    I believe my great grandparents were married at this beautiful church in September 1889.

    My Grandparents - Gladys Todd and George Proudlove were married at the church in January 1919. My Grandmother was born in Grimsby in 1893 and moved to Barnetby when she was 7. She was the daughter of Richard and Eliza Jane Todd. They lived at a large house called 'The Yews at the bottom of Church Hill' and then moved to a smaller house, Hawthorn Villa in Victoria Road, Barnetby.

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.
