St Giles

The village of Balderton is mentioned in Domesday and there was possibly a church of Saxon origin although no trace of this has ever been found.

About this church

The present stone church dates back to Norman times whilst other elements date from the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. The chancel has Early English lancet windows, some of which contain fragments of 14th and 15th century coloured glass. Inside there is a remarkable set of medieval bench ends with poppyheads formed by rabbits, hounds or grotesques.

St Mary Magdalene

Usually ranked among the very best parish churches of England, St Mary's dominates town and country with its immensely tall 14th century spire of Lincolnshire limestone.


All Saints

The tiny rural village of Hawton might seem a surprising place to find an astonishing gallery of medieval carvings in stone, but its handsome and unspoilt church is just that.

All Saints

From a distance, All Saints could be a little red roofed medieval country church, but in fact the appearance of the present building is largely the result of a restoration of the original 13th century
