Opening times

Sorry, there are no regular opening times for this church.



Inside there are Commandment Boards which have been painted directly onto the walls and are believed to be either late 18th century or early 19th century. The Royal Coat of Arms were painted in 1739 by Edward Hunton of Lincoln. The church and village of Barlings were given as part of a foundation gift to the nearby Barlings Abbey when it was founded by Ralf de Haya, son of the constable of Lincoln Castle in 1154.
