Haugham 
Haugham, All Saints Church

Haugham, All Saints Church

A Victorian Gothic church with a lovely spire built in imitation of that at nearby Louth, looking almost too slender and delicate to be built of stone. All Saints was erected in 1841 at the instigation of then rector, Rev G A Chaplin.

Kettlethorpe 

Kettlethorpe Church

A restored medieval church notable for its association with Katherine Swynford, wife of John of Gaunt. Katherine lived at the manor of Kettlethorpe before 1371, while she was married to Sir Hugh Swynford. A gateway arch (restored) from that manor still stands, and there is a medieval cross in the churchyard.

Kingerby 

Kingerby, St Peter Church

A redundant country church worth visiting for its medieval memorials to the Disney family, ancestors of film-maker Walt Disney. There are three 14th century memorials, two effigies to William Disney, father and son. The elder Disney fought with the Black Prince, the younger died in the terrible Black Death of 1349. The final Disney memorial is a very unusual carved tomb slab with a floriated cross where the body should be.

Lincoln 

Lincoln Cathedral

If Lincoln Cathedral were merely an empty shell, it would still deserve a visit for the extraordinary exterior. Here is art in stone. The west front, in particular, is magnificent in its use of sculptural detail and the richness of its design. Lincoln was largely rebuilt beginning in 1186 after a fire destroyed the earlier Norman church. Under the direction of Hugh of Avalon (Great Saint Hugh), the choir and eastern transepts were built, followed (1215-55) by the nave and chapter house. The angel choir is a masterpiece of the Decorated style. Look up at the central tower. It rises to 271 feet. Now imagine a spire extending another 284 feet up! That tower fell down in 1548. In the south east porch is the "Judgement Portal", with its marvellous relief carvings of Christ presiding over the Last Day, and in the choir is the "crazy vault" of intertwining ribs crisscrossing the bay. Everywhere you look are incredible carvings in wood and stone. Plan on spending a long time at Lincoln Cathedral.

Marton 

Marton Church

A small country church which dates mostly to the 11th century, with much evidence of late Saxon work. The west tower features traditional herringbone Saxon stonework, and there is a Saxon cross shaft embedded in the wall of the tower. In the chancel is an unusual 12th century stone crucifix.
