The lower parts of the tower date from the fourteenth century, the upper probably from the eighteenth.

Windows in the south aisle are of the Decorated period and those in the clerestory above from the later Perpendicular date.

The chancel of All Saints church was built in the eighteenth century in Georgian style with large round-headed windows on north and south elevations. The east window, facing the camera, is Venetian in style.

The east window of the south aisle (to the left) is attributed to Temple Moore's restoration of 1895-96.

Much of this house dates from the early 17th century but there are significant Norman features inside (corbelled half-pillars, a window). The extrior of the house was rebuilt in the Georgian period.

In its early days the house was occupied by the Bussey family and later the Brudenells.

More details about this house and its owners can be found in T R Leach's book, 'Lincolnshire Country Houses and their Families: Part 2', published by SLHA.  Buy a copy.

Telephone kiosk on Main Street now converted for use as a community library.

"In 1935 the K6 (kiosk number six) was designed to commemorate the silver jubilee of King George V.

It was consequently sometimes known as the "Jubilee" kiosk. It went into production in 1936.

The K6 was the first red telephone kiosk to be extensively used outside London, and many thousands were deployed in virtually every town and city, replacing most of the existing kiosks and establishing thousands of new sites.

In 1935 there had been 19,000 public telephones in the UK: by 1940, thanks to the K6, there were 35,000"
