The picturesque village of South Carlton is situated on the edge of the limestone cliff to north of Lincoln, just at the point where it dips down to meet the valley of the Trent.
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.
