Walesby • All Saints: "The Rambler's Church"

Walesby All Saints - Copyright Churches Festival

This iconic medieval church stands in solitary dignity overlooking the village of Walesby on the Viking Way. Also known as the Ramblers Church, the view from the church is quite spectacular.  A beautiful stained glass window depicting walkers and cyclists is inside. Recently substantial work was carried out on the tower to make it safe to ring the 8 bells.

Access only by a footpath up a steep hill.

All Saints is about 3.25miles NE of Market Rasen and stands on the Viking Way at one of the highest spots in Lincolnshire. All Saints described by John Betjeman as "an exceptionally attractive church worth bicycling twelve miles against the wind to see".
