Historic Churches in Lincolnshire

This page St Mary-le-Wigford - Yarburgh, St John the Baptist Church


Lincoln 

St Mary-le-Wigford

One of numerous fascinating medieval (and earlier) churches in Lincoln, St Mary-le-Wigford as built in the late Saxon period. The oldest part of the church is the tower which may date to 980 AD. The nave is Early English. A Roman grave stone is set into the west wall. In the Saxon period the Roman stone was reused as a dedication tablet. The church has limited opening hours, so please check first before visiting.

Stamford, St John's Church

Stamford, St John's Church

The historic church of St John's in Stanford was founded sometime in the 12th century, and may have originally belonged to the Abbey of St Fromond in Normandy. The church was almost completely rebuilt in 1451, so that today it represents an uncluttered example of Perpendicular Gothic style.

Walesby 

Walesby Church

A small church on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. All Saints is known as The Rambler's Church, as for many years it afforded shelter (both spiritual and physical!) to walkers on the Viking Way long distance foot path, which runs right past its door. The interior of the church features delightful carved head decoration on the nave pillars. A stained glass window depicting walkers and cyclists was donated by the Grimsby Wayfarers Association.

Yarburgh 
Yarburgh, St John the Baptist Church

Yarburgh, St John the Baptist Church

An attractive medieval church built of local sandstone in 1405, after a fire destroyed the previous church on this site. This makes it particularly interesting, as much of the architecture dates solely from the early 15th century.
