History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The second, modern church was built in 1913 by architect Temple Moore, in Arts and Crafts style. A hurricane in the 1930s caused damage to the spire, so it had to be removed. In 2008 an earthquake caused a large crack to appear in the tower and and masonry began to fall, so the church had to be shut for safety. As far as we can determine it has now been reopened.
Walesby was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, when it was called Walesbi. The current population is about 200.
