Haceby, St Barbara's Church

A small country church on the edge of the Lincolnshire Fens, St Barbara's church is an attractive medieval building consisting of a nave with clerestory, chancel, south aisle, south porch, and three storey west tower.

Haceby was once a thriving village, mentioned in the Domesday Book, but now is little more than a hamlet. It was historically part of the Welby estate and as such, avoided development. This was perhaps a mixed blessing, as the village has shrunk down to only a few inhabited cottages.

One historic episode relating to the church has been preserved; a 14th century vicar so annoyed some locals with his preaching that he was set upon and beaten during a service.

The church dates to at least the Norman period; the base of the tower dates to this period, as does the chancel arch. The chancel is in Early English in style, with a Jacobean east window.

The major historic feature of the interior can be found above the chancel arch. Here you will see a royal coat of arms to Queen Anne, painted over a medieval depiction of the Harrowing of Hell. The church is no longer used for regular worship and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
