St Mary's Church

Standing proud near to the Market Place, St Mary's is a fascinating mixture of different styles, the oldest part is the low tower which is surmounted by a small spirelet that is completely out of proportion with the rest of the building!

The pillars of the arcade have a pronounced lean towards the south, said by some people to signify the leaning of Christ’s head on the Cross. There are many other features to see within including: beautiful stained glass windows, ten gilded angels in the nave roof, a lepers’ squint and medieval scythes (linked to the War of the Roses or the Lincolnshire Rising).

An exhibition details the links with Alfred, Lord Tennyson and hatchments show the connection with The Dymoke Family (the King’s Champion). Nearby are parts of the old Roman wall.
