Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-
"The modern church of St. Swithin, standing on the site of the old Sheep square, was begun in 1870:
the nave and chancel were built in 1880, at a cost of £11,900, and the tower and spire were completed and the church dedicated in 1888, at a further cost of £6,350; the fabric, as now standing, is of Lincoln and Ancaster stone, in the Decorated style, and consists of chancel, nave, aisles, vestry, organ chamber, south porch and a western tower with pinnacles and spire rising to a height of 200 feet and containing one bell :
the tower forms a memorial to the late Joseph Shuttleworth esq. and was built at the sole expense of his son, Alfred Shuttleworth esq. of Eastgate House"
