Willingham by Stow - St Helen



Willingham by Stow, St Helen (by Richard Croft, source)


St Helen’s stands in the centre of the village and forms an integral part of the community. Whilst of Norman origin, the body of the church was almost entirely rebuilt in 1880 and the tower is thought to date back to the 14th century. It has several old stained glass windows as well as two modern windows.

There will be a display in the church and light refreshments will be served throughout the day. 

We are also open Friday 13th May, 10am-4pm.

Glentworth • St Michael

St Michael’s church is a superb late 11th century church with a stained glass window by Charles Kempe in the Saxon tower. It has a fine marble tomb of Sir Christopher Wray, Chief Justice of England during Elizabeth I’s reign, with his wife and children and is an Elizabethan gem. Three of his children played leading roles in the spread of puritan ideas between 1600 and 1620 and were associated with the Mayflower Pilgrims that sailed to America from Boston.

The church was partially rebuilt in 1794. A new West End Tower and Nave were built on to the 13th century Chancel. It was a typical George III church with a gallery at the West end and box pews. These have been swept away with the subsequent Victorian restoration in 1888, leaving behind the church seen today. 

The remains of the Nicholas Sutton Tomb in the Sanctuary and the blocked up medieval perpendicular two-light window in the South wall of the chancel are the only surviving evidence of the earlier church.

Our church is a little gem because it has several unique features. It has a stone exterior and a warm brick interior typical of James Fowler (rebuilt in 1866). The tower was rebuilt in 1894. Our pending tower restoration and repair works due to commence early 2022 should be completed before the festival so that you can join us in our celebrations and enjoy a warm welcome and light refreshments in our lovely church. Cake stall and book stall.

Pilham • All Saints



Pilham - Copyright Churches Festival - Photo: Ashley Taylor, Push Creativity
Described as one of the smallest churches in England with ‘everything’ in it, Pilham has undergone internal redecoration and externally a new roof, following the lead theft of 2019. A recent discover of a pen and ink drawing of 1789 confirms a longheld belief that the church door was originally on the south side and research continues into when the change to its current position took place and why.

Standing on a mound in the centre of the village our church is an unknown gem. The capitals of the sturdy pillars are decorated with scallops, all different. There are intriguing masons marks on one of them, a 1498 incised slab, a 1595 brass and a medieval altar stone.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - ADDITIONAL TO BROCHURE: On Sunday May 15th, from approximately 1pm to 1:30pm, there will be a Christening in the church, so it will be unavailable to festival visitors for this short time. An external guided walk and tour will be offered to visitors for the duration of the Christening. Apologies for any inconvenience. 

Described as “odd, but delightful with stunning views of the River Trent”, St Mary’s curious appearance reflects an intriguing and calamitous history. The church dates from c1330 and has interesting features including a superb Gothic font, a fine Jacobean pulpit complete with tester, medieval pew ends, and an unusual altar Baldacchino among many other amazing artefacts. A free guided tour is available with tales of naughty nuns, civil war intrigue and fabulous fortunes won, lost and given away.





St Mary’s English Decorated period Gothic font has been described thus:
“This very splendid font is we think altogether the handsomest we ever saw…”

The Meeting House in Market Street is a touchingly simple building dating from 1704, with a few later additions, mainly 19th century. It remains simple but with a powerful feeling of history, of prayer and of silence. The garden is an oasis in the middle of busy Gainsborough. Visit us and share its atmosphere of peace, talk to us about the experience of being a Quaker and find out the history of Quakerism in Lincolnshire.
