A landmark that rose from the ashes

St John's was rebuilt after a fire in 1405 and has a prominent sandstone tower which serves as a local landmark. The roofs and many of the fittings were renewed in 1854 during a restoration by James Fowler of Louth.

The tower is famed for its west doorway, which features superbly detailed carvings of Adam and Eve and the serpent, the Lamb of God and other Biblical themes.
