Originally a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, built in 1893. It is constructed in Gothic style of red brick with stone dressings. It has a stone string course, and a raised gable with a finial, and buttresses. It has pointed arch windows with stained glass and Decorated style tracery. Externally unchanged, in 2021 the interior was modernised with the previous sloping floor levelled. We welcome you to a chat and cup of tea in a sympathetically improved historic building.

Greetwell • All Saints

Greetwell - Copyright Churches Festival*
The medieval settlement of Greetwell was established before the 11th century with 20-30 households. Up to the 15th century it was self sufficient in grain and had a dairy, a smithy, bakery, church and priest.

Today Greetwell Church flourishes with no village but a congregation from far and wide. Greetwell is one mile to the east of Lincoln, on the road to Cherry Willingham.

Friesthorpe • St Peter

Friesthorpe - Copyright Churches Festival*
Friesthorpe’s sacrifice during the Great War was the loss of five of eight sons in the Beechey family, and two other soldiers, such a loss for one tiny community. Admire the Beechey window, so generously given in their memory and appreciate our new path which makes access to our church so much easier.

Buslingthorpe - St Michael


Buslingthorpe St Michael *
St Michael’s church stands framed by large trees surrounding a part-moated farm, it is one of the few remaining buildings of the site of a deserted medieval village. Apart from its square tower, the church was rebuilt in brick in 1835. Unassuming outside, it hides treasures within; two 14th century monuments to the De Buslingthorpe family - one a brass effigy of a knight in armour on a tomb chest showing clearly the clothes worn in battle at that time.

Buslingthorpe Church family tomb chest from the late 13th century. The effigy of a knight has his head on a cushion supported by angels. He is dressed in chain mail, a helmet and a surcoat.*
