Although locked, I was able to take a number of photos of the interior of the church through the nave windows. The interior is filthy and neglected, piles of pews lie in the chancel and under the tower. The early nineteenth century plaster ceiling in the nave has been breached in some places and plaster is coming off the wall. How long is it before the delicate plaster vault in the chancel collapses?
I'm sure this building is loved by those who have responsibility for, but this is a isolated Wolds community and I suspect support for the church is rather limited. Like so many in Lincolnshire, the building probably presents an insuperable challenge for its guardians.
Access: The church is locked and there is no named keyholder. There is ample parking around the church.
