Fillingham had three examples of the same Mason's mark on the font.
|Glentham, very faintly carved 'double-V' marks |
which are said to represent the Virgin Mary and ward off evil
|Glentworth had very few examples, but included the small |
cross previously unseen by the church community!
Holton cum Beckering church had some graffiti, mostly initials and scratches
that may (or may not!) be graffiti. One patterned symbol was found on the
south door frame, but what it means is a mystery. Any suggestions?
|Northorpe Church has a Nine Men's Morris almost hidden by |
layers of paint, on the south wall window ledge
|Northorpe Church also has a particularly interesting |
group of hands carved onto one of the North Aisle pillars
|18th Century graffiti at Rand Church, the name "I Bentley Fulnetby 1768".|
Snelland church had a couple of 'double-v' marks outside,
on the eastern end of the south wall. These symbols are alleged
to be representative of the Virgin Mary.
There will be over 80 churches open across the district, just north of the cathedral city of Lincoln, England.
This website will be updated with the 2016 details in March 2016, but please look at the existing pages as they will give a very good idea of what the festival is all about.
