A silvery-grey tower amongst the trees

Standing in a churchyard edged with trees, this beautiful Medieval church was built largely in the fourteenth century.

The tower is of Lincolnshire limestone built in the Perpendicular style, but the rest of the church is largely built of local ironstone.

The interior was tastefully restored in the Victorian era - look for the nineteenth-century altar screen with its Crucifixion painting.
