Welcome, we hope you find our parish church a place of peace as well as of interest. Christians have worshipped on this spot for over 900 years. Please pick up a church guide showing points of interest. In the Lady Chapel which was added 1877 as an extension for further seating,the face of a Green Man can be seen on the corbel, this image of pagan origin adopted for the Christian tradition was used for medieval decoration.

We are embracing ‘Hymns, Songs & Psalms’ theme and will have flowers and exhibits to view. Visitors will receive a warm welcome, light refreshments and a chance to browse amongst the many plants and books for sale. The most notable feature of our church, nestled in a valley at the foot of the Wolds is the tower. Except for the 15th century top stage and buttresses it was built in late Saxon times.

Click this link to view and download the PDF of the trail 

A 16.5 mile walking trail from the birthplace of Archbishop Stephen Langton, key in the sealing of Magna Carta, to the historic city of Lincoln.

The Stephen Langton Trail starts at the Lincolnshire village of Langton-by-Wragby, birthplace of Archbishop Stephen Langton, and takes a meandering and picturesque 16.5 mile walk to historic Lincoln and Lincoln Castle, home to an original copy of the 1215 Magna Carta.

The trail is split into three sections to allow for all abilities and so the walk can be split up over a space of time:

  • Section One leads from Langton-by-Wragby to Apley through the Lincolnshire Limewood Nature Reserve (4 miles)
  • Section Two from Thistle Storr Wood near Apley to Fiskerton along the Viking Way (6¼ miles)
  • Section Three follows the River Witham Valley from Fiskerton on a delightful riverside walk to Lincoln's Cathedral Quarter (6¼ miles).
