Reasons for trip

This is a tiny church set in the middle of rolling Lincolnshire countryside with no other settlement in sight.

The area has been settled since Roman times and by the 12thC there was a thriving village with 37 crofts of mud and stud houses with roads, drainage ditches and a blacksmith’s shop.

There had been a high ranking Anglo-Saxon fortified manor which was replaced by a short lived Norman motte and bailey castle with a moat and wide ramparts. By the 15thC the site had disappeared along with many other villages in the area, following a number of cold winters and failed crops.

St George’s Church is the only building to have survived. It is set on a slight rise, surrounded by trees to the north and reached along a trackway across a field. It is a small brick building which was built on a more substantial 13thC stone church. The nave is 16thC, the chancel was rebuilt in 18thc and the small bell cote above the west end is Victorian. By 1900 it was just used as a mortuary chapel for the graveyard around it.

Inside a door on the right leads to a wooden staircase to the gallery with two old unpainted pews on tiers.

The inside of the church is Georgian. The walls are whitewashed and the furniture painted duck egg blue. The double decker pulpit dominates the nave. On either side of it are two box pews with simple wooden pews at the back of the nave. The floor has old grave slabs.

There is a simple round chancel arch and a step up into the chancel. This has older pews and one has the carving of a lion on the pew end. On a raised dais is a simple table altar surrounded by a banistered altar rail. There is a panelled reredos on the east wall.

The church is lit by large round topped windows with plain glass. At the back is a modern stone font.

The church is no longer used and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust and is always open. There is some verge parking on the road by the track to the church.
