The leaning tower of Lincolnshire

The tall, square tower of this marshland church leans dramatically to the west, as if trying to stretch away from the long, low nave below. Inside, the church is striking for its light and stillness - it has an air of peace in contrast to its wild, marshy setting.

All Saints is sparsely but beautifully furnished with a gorgeous fifteenth-century carved screen and two pulpits, one Elizabethan and rustic, the other seventeenth century from Oriel College, Oxford. The heavy timbered roof demonstrates the good, honest craftsmanship of medieval builders.
