St Nicholas

Described by Arthur Mee as 'tiny and remote and prettily set' Cuxwold does indeed feel a little remote when there but it's only just off the main arterial road in Lincolnshire.

Cuxwold, Lincolnshire

Opening times

Open daily, dawn to dusk.


Cuxwold Road

This tiny ironstone church dedicated to St Nicholas is prettily set on rising ground. The lower part of the tower is 11th century and the church has a Norman font and original Norman arch opening to the nave. The main restoration to the church was carried out in 1860 by James Fowler. It's easy to criticise Fowler nowadays for having, at times, been less than sympathetic and lacking in care when it comes to preserving original features, but some have remained in the church including a surviving 15th century window and a Norman drum font. Which was found under the floor in 1872. There are also two 12th century grave markers against the east wall. There is also a monument to the Thorold family dated around 1810. The Thorold family also commissioned the building of Cuxwold Hall in 1861.

Cabourne, Lincolnshire

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.
