St Bartholomew’s Church
Ingoldsby's parish church dates to the 11th century and was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. Though the church was rebuilt in the Victorian period it retains features from the 11th to the 15th centuries, including a medieval window depicting the Coronation of the Virgin.
In the south aisle is a tomb recess dating to the 15th century. The nave roof is 16th century and in the chancel are a pair of finely crafted 16th-century chairs. The font is 15th century and there are 14th-century glass fragments in the east window of the south aisle.
Aside from the church, there are 3 other listed buildings in the village. On Main Street is the Old Manor House, formerly the rectory and now a private dwelling. It was built in 1847 in Gothic style and stands 2 storeys high with a facade of 6 bays.
Also on Main Street is the Post Office, built in the 17th century with late 19th century additions. On Scotland Lane is Scotland House, erected around AD 1700 and altered in the mid-19th century.
Nearby is a prehistoric camp known as Round Hills, and five miles from Ingoldsby is the historic house of Grimsthorpe Castle.
