Torksey is a place of great interest. Built at the point where the Roman Foss Dyke meets the river Trent, the Romans established a town here called Tiovulfingacester. In the seventh century St Paulinus baptised a great multitude of people in the river near Torksey, in the presence of King Edwin. At the time of Domesday Book there were three thousand people living here and of all the settlements in Lincolnshire, only Lincoln and Stamford were larger. In the Middle Ages as well as St Peter's, there were two other parish churches in Torksey, All Saints and St Mary's and two monasteries, a house of Augustinian Canons and the priory of Foss for Cistercian nuns.
Access: The church is on a main road and parking is difficult. I suggest parking in the car park of the Hume Arms opposite. The church is kept locked, but there is a keyholder notice.
