Bag Enderby is a hamlet in the Lincolnshire Wolds 6 miles north east of Horncastle.

George Clayton Tennyson, father of Lord Tennyson, was Rector here from 1807 to 1831.

The cottage in this painting is of mud and stud construction, a common building material in this part of the County.

George Tennyson, father of the famous Alfred, held the living of St Margaret in Bag Enderby in the early nineteenth century.

The greenstone church was built by Albinus de Enderby, who died in 1407.

There is a partly ancient screen and a fine fifteenth-century font.

Like many churches in south-east Lindsey, the tower of Bag Enderby church is constructed in greenstone (Spilsby sandstone) with limestone capping and details.

This fine 15th century octagonal font is, according to Simon Jenkins, ‘worth crossing Lincolnshire to see’.

Images carved on the faces include: a figure playing a stringed instrument, a hart licking the leaves of a tree growing from its back, and a Pieta.
