This view of SS Peter and Paul from the south-east shows the unfortunate mixture of roof materials and the stark cement rendering on the vestry.

SS Peter & Paul has a 3-bay Norman north arcade dating from c 1200.

The chancel was rebuilt in 1808 but reuses a late 13th century east window with geometrical tracery.

In contrast the east window of the north aisle has intersecting tracery.

the oldest portions of the church are the nave and aisle, both of Norman date, the chancel was built about 1808:

There are 200 sittings.

The register dates from the year 1700"

The embattlement and pinnacles mentioned in Kelly's Directory no longer survive.

White's Directory of Lincolnshire 1856 states :-

"The Church (St. Peter and St. Paul) is a modernised building, retaining some circular Norman arches.

It is a rectory, valued in K.B. at £9. 3s. 4d., and now at £233, having 240 acres of land in lieu of tithes.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster is patron, and the Rev. Joseph Green, M.A., is the incumbent, and has a neat residence, erected in 1844"

Font "is made from reused sections of a massive drum pillar, quite out of scale with anything which survives, and of uncertain date.

The topmost section is probably a reused and inverted capital of which one plain volute survives"
