Reasons for trip

We spent a day round Lincolnshire visiting some of the redundant churches looked after by the Churches Conservation Trust.

Looking for the church at Saltfleetby All Saints we noticed on the 1:50,000 map there was the remains of a church and tower marked at Saltfleetby St Peter’s. We went to investigate. I have a reputation for chasing after obscure places which can end up with Michael commenting afterwards “That wasn’t one of your better ideas”. It was down a narrow lane with grass growing down the centre. Michael looked at me and asked “are you sure about this?” Oh ye of little faith – there was the tower….

Surrounded by a small graveyard with old stone gravestones was the remains of the tower of St Peter’s Church dating from 13/15thC. The nave and chancel are long gone and marked by bumps in the grass. The tower has seen better days and is decidedly wonky, in spite of the large buttresses. It has a circular tower on the side giving access to the bell chamber and the remains of the brickwork wall of the nave can be seen on the east side. It was used as the mortuary chapel for burials in the old churchyard.

The church was in a ruinous condition and was replaced by a small Victorian building with bell cote at the crossroads in the village in 1877.

Don't bother going out of your way to find this one, but if going past, stop off for a quick look.
