St George

A Tudor chapel by a lost village.

Goltho, Lincolnshire

Opening times

Open daily, dawn to dusk.



The charming red brick chapel of St George stands alone amid acres of corn and oilseed rape with only a few trees for company. It is situated beside one of Lincolnshire's lost villages, an old Saxon settlement long since buried. The name 'Goltho'; is said to be Saxon for 'where the marigolds grow'. Inside, it previously boasted an atmosphere of calm and simplicity, with rustic wooden pews, an altar screen and a simple two decker pulpit. Sadly however, the chapel was the victim of a heart breaking fire in 2013 and currently remains closed.
