St Luke

The antiquarian sixth Baron Monson visited this church in September 1828 and found two Monson monuments within this 'very neat, small edifice'.

North Carlton, Lincolnshire

Opening times

Daily dawn until dusk.


Church Lane
North Carlton

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.
