The glory of St Edith’s is its medieval woodwork. Magnificent rood screen with its loft and oak boarded tympanum dominates the church. It is the only surviving example in Lincolnshire.

Almost every century has made a distinctive contribution to the structure, a testimony to the many people whose spiritual home it has been. Amazingly it escaped the ravages of the Reformation and rebellion, aided, no doubt by the moated situation. 




The Church is an architectural gem, an oasis of peace and serenity located in the midst of a busy, working farm. 

It is a living place of worship with regular services.

Stow • St Mary

Photo: Ashley Taylor, Push Creativity*

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. Enjoy the peace and quiet, reflect on the skills of our forebears.

With Saxon origins, the church was rebuilt as a traditional Norman church with a narrow nave and chancel with west tower. A north aisle was added during the Early English period when the Bishop of Lincoln gave it to the Gilbertine Priory of St Katherine without Lincoln. The influence of this connection can be seen in the quality of the aisle arcade capitals, two of which can be matched to a mason working on Lincoln Cathedral.
