Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-
"The church of St. Lawrence is a large edifice of brick and stone of the Perpendicular period, dating probably from about 1420, with some fragments of Norman work, and consists of chancel, nave, aisles, north porch and an embattled western tower with pinnacles, containing a clock and 6 bells :
the 4 old bells being recast and 2 new ones added in 1907 :
the chancel was restored in 1873 at the cost of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners and in course of the work, an ancient altar slab, bearing seven crosses, was met with:
it has since been placed on an oak frame and now forms a communion table:
the stained east window was placed in Jan 1895 :
the rest of the church was restored in 1878-80, at a cost of about £2,500, when the west end of the north aisle was formed into a baptistery:
in 1916 a side altar was erected from stone including the old altar slab brought from the Benedidine Abbey of SS. Paul, Peter and Oswald, and a lady chapel formed in the north aisle:
some of the church plate dates from 1569:
there are 400 sittings.
The register dates from the year 1653.
The living is a discharged vicarage, net yearly value £310, including 47 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the Bishop of Lincoln, and held since 1918 by the Rev. Walter Thomas French M.A. of Balliol College, Oxford"
