Hainton • St Mary

Hainton St Mary - Photo by David Wright (source)
An estate church of Anglo-Saxon origins, rebuilt in the 13th and 14th centuries and sympathetically restored in the 19th century. The spire was suggested by Capability Brown when he redesigned the park. Inside, there is a “nationally important” series of monuments to the Heneage Family, from a brass of 1435 to a modern memorial of 1954, providing an illustrated history of monumental styles. They are unusual because of the time span for one family. Light refreshments available throughout the day.

Kirkby cum Osgodby • St Andrew




Photograph by Richard Croft, source.

St Andrew’s church serves both Kirkby and the adjoining village of Osgodby which has never had an Anglican church of its own. It was built by 1160 and the tower and chancel are both 13th century. The nave was rebuilt in the 19th and 20th century. An interesting feature is the East window which is crooked on one side. No-one knows why.

Enclosed by tall horse chestnut trees, St Hilary’s is an unusual late Victorian church designed by James Fowler of Louth in 1873. Look for the high tower with saddleback roof, the stained glass windows (particularly the Nativity scenes in the West window) and the Victorian woodwork in the chancel. The beautiful restored Thomas Nicholson organ is a point of interest. We have guided tours both days at 2pm. Tours take 30-40 minutes.

The church and family mausoleum is believed to have been designed by Lancelot “Capability” Brown – built c1775 whilst working for Richard 4th Earl Scarborough. Brown designed several churches (including Compton Verney in Warwickshire and Combe D’Abitot in Worcestershire), whilst carrying out his landscape commissions on estates around the country. The church is a wonderful example of the classical style he used.

Snarford • St Lawrence


Photo: Ashley Taylor, Push Creativity*

Nothing about the rather unremarkable exterior of this small medieval church prepares you for the breathtaking surprise of the interior. St Lawrence has some of the most spectacular memorial sculptures in Lincolnshire. The largest, from the 1580s, features life-size figures of Sir Thomas St Paul and his wife, members of a dynasty of rich lawyer politicians. Sir Thomas  reclines, dressed in armour with a gold chain round his neck, his wife lies beside him elegantly dressed with a ruff and head dress.

Nearby the Jacobean Sir George reclines with his formidable wife Lady France and their only child, the tragic Mattathia.
