St Peter

The only thatched church in Lincolnshire.

Markby, Lincolnshire

Opening times

Open during daylight hours.


Sutton Road
LN13 9QJ

Markby is unique. It is one of the few thatched churches in England, and the only thatched church in Lincolnshire.

Today the interior of the church still bears traces of its history, in particular in the Norman dog toothed decoration on the chancel arch and the former oak cross beam rescued from the roof which bears a date of 1611. The ancient font, a delightful 13th century rose sculpture and 19th century box pews, which probably belonged to a former church compliment the furnishings of this delightful and most rural of churches.
