A relatively short-lived place of worship, this chapel was erected in 1866 and services were discontinued in 1907.

The chapel was sold in 1913 and the building remained roofless and half demolished for over 80 years.

It is located at NGR TF 337 542 on the southern edge of Stickney parish where it adjoins Sibsey parish.

Stickney station opened with what was known as the ĎNew Lineí, between Coningsby Junction and Bellwater Junction, in 1913.

Built by the Great Northern Railway with a double track, in 1916 the GNR Board agreed to lift one line of rails to assist the war effort. This happened on several branch lines nationwide with the rails destined for use in France.

The missing track was reinstated in 1923.

This station lost its goods service in 1964, became unstaffed in 1968 and the line and station closed in 1970.

The nave arcades are Early English whilst the tower is Perpendicular though lowered and restored in the late nineteenth century.

The chancel of 1853 is by William Butterfield, who added the clerestory two years later.

Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-

"The church of St. Luke is a building of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, clerestoried nave of four bays, aisles, south porch and a massive tower containing 5 bells:

in 1853 a new chancel was erected from designs by the late Mr. W. Butterfield, architect, and in 1855 the rest of the church was restored under his direction:

the church was lighted in 1884 by the members of the Mayday club, in memory of the Rev. Canon George Coltman M.A. rector 1835-83:

the porch was rebuilt in 1887, almost on the old plan, from designs by W. and C. A. Bassett-Smith, architects, of London, when the tower was also partly pulled down and temporarily roofed over, but in 1900 this was rebuilt and the lower part restored; the south aisle has also been restored, at a total cost of £3,100:

there is a stained window in memory of John Kirkham esq. :

the church will seat 436 persons.

About one rood of land was purchased by the parish in 1900 and added to the churchyard"

"To the glory of God, and in grateful remembrance of George Henry Hales, the beloved Curate and Rector of Stickney for 43 years, who passed to the fuller life 22nd November, 1922, this Window was dedicated by his Parishioners, Friends and Relations 27th September, 1923.

It was mainly through his zeal that the tower of this Church was rebuilt in 1900.

In his day he was an athlete of world-wide renown"

A Lincoln Record Society news review states :-

"Another remarkable athlete among the Lincolnshire parish clergy was George Henry Hales, Rector of Stickney from 1883 until 1922.

An athletics blue at Cambridge and President of the University Athletics Club, he was universally known as ĎHammer Halesí, holding for twenty years the world record for throwing the hammer"

The Window was designed and executed by Messrs. Burlison and Grylls, Great Ormond Street, London.

The third Wesleyan Methodist chapel in the village opened in November 1857.

When the chapel became unsafe the adjoining Sunday schoolroom was used for services.

The final service was held in July 1974 and the building was sold in 1977 and demolished soon after.

A bungalow now occupies the chapel site.

It is located at NGR TF 344 569.
