Mareham-on-the-Hill, Lincolnshire

The delightful and rather rustic church of All Saints, Mareham-on-the-Hill, stands hidden behind farm buildings on a hillside with wonderful views across the Lincolnshire Wolds towards Fulletby Top. All that remains of the medieval building is the chancel, the rest of the church is Georgian. There was a rebuilding in 1780 and further work was undertaken in 1804. The uneveness of the exterior masonry, a mix of greenstone, ironstone and brick, has been relieved with a coat of limewash, which is now quite worn. Inside the church are charming Georgian furnishings, a double decker pulpit and box pews all painted blue, contrasting with a contemporary floor of red brick.
