The Humber is actually eight miles away.

St Andrew's in Irby-on-Humber was thoroughly restored by James Fowler of Louth in 1883.

The nave arcades are Norman and the south doorway dates from about 1200.

the south aisle retains a piscina:

the font is Norman; and near the tower are two ancient slabs inscribed to members of the Malet family and dated 1493:

there are four stained glass windows, one of those in the chancel being a memorial to the late Rev. G. S. Robinson B.A. rector 1842-1880:

the church was restored and other repairs effected in 1883, at a total cost of £1,200:

there are 120 sittings"
