Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-
"The church of St. Mary, rebuilt by subscription in 1862, from the designs of Mr. Withers, is a small edifice of stone in the Early Decorated style, consisting of chancel, nave, vestry, south porch and a turret containing one bell:
during the restoration of the church, the battered remains of an effigy of a Knight Templar were found outside the church, confirming a tradition, of long standing, that three crusaders had been respectively buried at Panton, Buslingthorpe and West Torrington:
the other effigies still exist in the two former churches; the fragments discovered have been placed near the font, which is a fine and unusually large structure of the Norman period:
the stained east window is a memorial to William George Ernest Windham Gerald B.A. of St. John's College, Oxford:
there are 116 sittings"
