Stow • St Mary

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.

Newton on Trent • St Peter

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.
