Hainton • St Mary

Hainton St Mary - Photo by David Wright (source)
An estate church of Anglo-Saxon origins, rebuilt in the 13th and 14th centuries and sympathetically restored in the 19th century. The spire was suggested by Capability Brown when he redesigned the park. Inside, there is a “nationally important” series of monuments to the Heneage Family, from a brass of 1435 to a modern memorial of 1954, providing an illustrated history of monumental styles. They are unusual because of the time span for one family. Light refreshments available throughout the day.

Lea - St Helens



St Helen’s dates from 12th century, with the North aisle added in 1380. The tower was rebuilt in 1500 and contained various numbers of bells from about 1553. There is presently a peal of 6, which are rung regularly. The quarter chiming clock was a gift to the parish of Lea in 1814.   between the Choir and the North aisle is a medieval tomb to Sir Roger Trehampton, one of the Knights Templar. 

Flower festival with a wedding theme, display of dresses. New memorial window dedicated to Marshall family of Lea.



The 20th Century Rood Screen that crosses the south chancel is made of oak from the Lea Estate and was built by local craftsmen as a memorial to the men of the parish who lost their lives during the First World War – a plaque to the side lists the names of those men.

The small, 2 manual, organ was built in 1849 by Hunter of London and was originally installed at the west end of the church in the 13th Century tower arch. It was moved to its current position, in the south chancel, in 1875 and was first played by the organist of York Minster – Dr. W.H. Monk.

Kirkby cum Osgodby • St Andrew




Photograph by Richard Croft, source.

St Andrew’s church serves both Kirkby and the adjoining village of Osgodby which has never had an Anglican church of its own. It was built by 1160 and the tower and chancel are both 13th century. The nave was rebuilt in the 19th and 20th century. An interesting feature is the East window which is crooked on one side. No-one knows why.

The internationally renowned cruciform Anglo-Saxon minster church of St Mary dates to 975AD with a Norman chancel completed around 1150AD. The Victorian restoration was sensitive to the original construction. Important features include Viking graffiti from 10th-11th century, a 12th century wall painting depicting the life and death in 1170AD of Thomas Becket,  Archbishop of Canterbury, and a font from 1300AD.

Enclosed by tall horse chestnut trees, St Hilary’s is an unusual late Victorian church designed by James Fowler of Louth in 1873. Look for the high tower with saddleback roof, the stained glass windows (particularly the Nativity scenes in the West window) and the Victorian woodwork in the chancel. The beautiful restored Thomas Nicholson organ is a point of interest. We have guided tours both days at 2pm. Tours take 30-40 minutes.
