Dalby Hall (about 2 miles NNE of Spilsby) was built in 1856, after a previous house had been destroyed by fire.

The design is classical unusual for the architect James Fowler. The bow fronts were added in 1898.

(The house is privately owned; the photograph was taken from the nearby public footpath.)

The exterior of the church is entirely of stone - some ashlar but mostly dressed and coursed rubble. By contrast the interior is built of brick, bright red with occasional use of yellow and black to give polychrome impact.

This is the entrance doorway through the south porch.

It is known to have been stone built - some material was used for the current building - and apparently thatched.
