St Nicholas

St Nicholas stands on a bend on the A46 and is easily missed, but if you stop you will find a surprisingly beautiful church with Saxon tower, grave markers, Norman font and other ancient features.

Cabourne, Lincolnshire

Opening times

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


Grimsby Road

The drum font goes back to Norman times and was found under the floor when Sir AW Blomfield carried out his extensive rebuilding in 1872. There are two 12th century grave markers against the east wall which are of interest. Built of local ironstone, the church is ancient, and although it was restored in 1872 there are remnants of it ancient past. Namely a 13th century lancet window and, according to Pesvner, a original doorway.
