We are embracing ‘Anniversaries’ theme and will have flowers and exhibits to view. Visitors will receive a warm welcome, light refreshments and a chance to browse amongst the many plants and books for sale. The most notable feature of our church, nestled in a valley at the foot of the Wolds is the tower. Except for the 15th century top stage and buttresses it was built in late Saxon times.

This little roadside church is the thirteenth century chancel of a larger church which was a ruin until 1889, when the chancel was gently restored and a west porch added. Inside you can see a fourteenth century stone slab with an incised cross and chalice commemorating a priest, and Latin inscriptions in praise of the Virgin Mary adorn on the wooden ceiling. A fine font and pews have been rescued from other historic churches.

St Nicholas stands on a bend on the A46 and is easily missed, but if you stop you will find a surprisingly beautiful church with Saxon tower, grave markers, Norman font and other ancient features.
