About this church
It contains a fine selection of fine stained glass, both Victorian and modern, a fine Reredos (ornamental screen) behind the altar and a rood screen between the nave and chancel commemorates soldiers from the First World War.
Woodhall Spa played an important role during WWII. During January 1944, 617 Squadron (Dambusters) moved to Woodhall Spa and remained at this airfield until the end of the war. The Petwood Hotel in the village was commandeered along with much local accommodation for the air and ground crew. From this airfield 617 Squadron went on to drop the Tallboy and Grandslam bomb and to sink the Tirpitz. Memorials and exhibitions can be seen to remember the activities.
It is well worth a visit to the town, the church and the hotels to explore this rich aviation heritage.
