North Carlton, St Luke

North Carlton, Lincolnshire

Location

You can see South Carlton church from the churchyard of North Carlton.  Like South Carlton, North Carlton and it's manor house were Monson property.  The antiquarian sixth Baron Monson visited this church in September 1828 and found two Monson monuments within this 'very neat, small edifice'.  These monuments, brasses covering the burials of two younger sons of the Monson Baronets, are still to be seen in the sanctuary.  With the exception of the tower with its Norman and Perpendicular bell stage, the brasses predate the church. For in 1770 the medieval building was replaced with the present ashlared nave and apsidal chancel.  The simple whitewashed interior is simply furnished and retains a 'birdbath' font and balustered altar rails of 1770.

  1. Amazing photo It is really hot but it is not the last one. The water at this time of year though it incredible, after heating up for the past few months, it's at it's warmest right now as written by the best cv writers. Best time for a dip. It doesn't look so hot from the image, but that cloud burned off and it was hot real hot.
