Glentworth • St Michael

St Michael’s church is a superb late 11th century church with a stained glass window by Charles Kempe in the Saxon tower. It has a fine marble tomb of Sir Christopher Wray, Chief Justice of England during Elizabeth I’s reign, with his wife and children and is an Elizabethan gem. Three of his children played leading roles in the spread of puritan ideas between 1600 and 1620 and were associated with the Mayflower Pilgrims that sailed to America from Boston.

The church was partially rebuilt in 1794. A new West End Tower and Nave were built on to the 13th century Chancel. It was a typical George III church with a gallery at the West end and box pews. These have been swept away with the subsequent Victorian restoration in 1888, leaving behind the church seen today. 

The remains of the Nicholas Sutton Tomb in the Sanctuary and the blocked up medieval perpendicular two-light window in the South wall of the chancel are the only surviving evidence of the earlier church.

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.

Our church is a little gem because it has several unique features. It has a stone exterior and a warm brick interior typical of James Fowler (rebuilt in 1866). The tower was rebuilt in 1894. Our pending tower restoration and repair works due to commence early 2022 should be completed before the festival so that you can join us in our celebrations and enjoy a warm welcome and light refreshments in our lovely church. Cake stall and book stall.

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.

Pilham • All Saints



Pilham - Copyright Churches Festival - Photo: Ashley Taylor, Push Creativity
Described as one of the smallest churches in England with ‘everything’ in it, Pilham has undergone internal redecoration and externally a new roof, following the lead theft of 2019. A recent discover of a pen and ink drawing of 1789 confirms a longheld belief that the church door was originally on the south side and research continues into when the change to its current position took place and why.

Knaith • St Mary

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - ADDITIONAL TO BROCHURE: On Sunday May 15th, from approximately 1pm to 1:30pm, there will be a Christening in the church, so it will be unavailable to festival visitors for this short time. An external guided walk and tour will be offered to visitors for the duration of the Christening. Apologies for any inconvenience. 

Described as “odd, but delightful with stunning views of the River Trent”, St Mary’s curious appearance reflects an intriguing and calamitous history. The church dates from c1330 and has interesting features including a superb Gothic font, a fine Jacobean pulpit complete with tester, medieval pew ends, and an unusual altar Baldacchino among many other amazing artefacts. A free guided tour is available with tales of naughty nuns, civil war intrigue and fabulous fortunes won, lost and given away.





St Mary’s English Decorated period Gothic font has been described thus:
“This very splendid font is we think altogether the handsomest we ever saw…”

Blyton • St Martin

Photo: Ashley Taylor, Push Creativity*
Blyton church has an impressive display of the flags of the allies in WWI. They hang above arcades 6 and 7 centuries old. The chancel, although much rebuilt last century, has its original East window of about 1300, its old piscina and aumbry and a 15th century window and part of the old rood beam is still over the arch. The font, with carved panels and embattled top, is a handsome example of 15th century craftsmanship.
