Goulceby is a delightful village nestling in the valleys of the Lincolnshire Wolds. On the Viking Way long distant footpath, All Saints is a welcomed shelter in inclement weather. An unassuming grade II listed parish church, All Saints was rebuilt in 1908 reusing medieval fragments. Although simple in style and size it is however tenderly cared for.
Following the wooded sign that points down a green lane, you emerge at the entrance to a field and the most spectacular view of All Saints church and the Lincolnshire Wolds hills, it is quite breathtaking.
All Saints, was originally built in the 12th and 13th century, when the population of the Wolds was considerably greater. As the population declined the building was gradually reduced in size and its exterior and interior walls show evidence of a lost north aisle, a west tower and the truncation of the chancel.
This pretty church church stands on a hill overlooking idyllic countryside. The first church here dates from the 14th century, but the earliest written record is from 1474, when it appears to have been a chapel of ease or possibly a domestic chapel for the Fittons of Siddington Hall. The chapel was timber framed, but much of the timberwork was pulled down in the 18th century to be replaced by brick.
Designed by GF Bodley and dedicated in 1862, All Saints is of major importance as his first collaboration with William Morris.
Although it displays a variety of styles and periods, All Saints is primarily 15th century and built in the main from local greenstone. It retains its Norman doorway and the tower boasts some fine gargoyles.
A small church set in the hamlet of Greetham on one of the highest points on the Lincolnshire Wolds, with spectacular views across the rolling hillside. The church is built of greenstone with some original Norman stonework.
The church has pride of place in this historic hilltop village, making a photogenic composition with the black and white houses around it. The chancel is believed to stand on Roman foundations, and the oldest visible parts of the building are early Norman.
There has been a building on the site since 1230, when Simon de Tynton was presented by William de Lisures to be the first Rector.
The village of Nunney is situated at the east end of the Mendip Hills close to the town of Frome in Somerset. At the heart of the village is the Grade I Listed church which sits close by and overlooks the medieval moated castle.
