A large group of SLHA members enjoyed visits to the churches in Legbourne and Little Cawthorpe on Tuesday 26 April. The leader for the morning's tour was Jean Howard, Blue Badge Guide, local church member and Churches Conservation Trust volunteer.
All Saints Church at Legbourne, largely built of chalk, has outstanding Victorian stained glass windows and other significant features, some dating from the medieval period. By contrast, Little Cawthorpe's Church of St Helen, built in 1860 by eminent architect R J Withers, reflects Victorian taste in its style and decoration.
The day was bright though cool, ideal for Jean's guided walk - a bonus - on the quiet lane and paths between the two churches. Coffee and cake served by church members at Legbourne were much appreciated.
