The subject of Sir John Betjeman’s poem ‘A Lincolnshire Church’, St Margaret’s, Huttoft, is a greenstone building with thirteenth-century tower and chancel arch, a Decorated arcade and Perpendicular aisles.

The chancel is eighteenth-century though its windows are Victorian.

Betjeman was surprised to find the church open to visitors – no such luck today.
