The oldest part of St Radegund’s is the very broad west tower, the lowest stage of which dates from the late 12th century.

The nave and chancel were rebuilt in 1797, with later alterations by James Fowler in 1870.

Kelly's Directory 1913 has :-

"The church of St. Radegund, rebuilt in 1797, with the exception of the tower, is an edifice of stone, consisting of chancel, nave and an embattled western tower of the Early English period, with four pinnacles and containing 3 bells:

there is a memorial window in the south wall to the Peele family, inserted in 1881:

the church was thoroughly restored and a vestry added on the north side in 1870, and in 1906 it was new-roofed and the chancel and vestry extended, at a cost, including heating apparatus, of £650:

there are 70 sittings"

White's Directory 1872 reports :-

"The Church (St. Radegund), was rebuilt in 1773, except the tower, which is very ancient. The building has recently been reseated, restored, an organ erected, and a vestry added to the north side, chiefly at the expense of the lord of the manor, and through the exertions of the rector. The rectory, valued in K.B. at £25. 17s. 6d., and now at £501, is in the patronage of the Bishop of Lincoln, and incumbency of the Rev. John White, M.A., who has a good residence and 30 acres of glebe land. The tithes were commuted for a rent-charge in 1846"

Reported in the Church Guide that :-

"The present organ is by Flight and Son, purchased from Kirton in Lindsey Wesleyan Chapel in 1935. It has a gothic front and stencilled pipes in a 'V' shape"

"Benjamin Flight (c.1767–1847), was an English organ builder and part of the firm Flight & Robson. 

Flight was the son of Benjamin Flight (fl. 1772–1805), who belonged to the organ building firm Flight & Kelly. With his son J. Flight and Joseph Robson, Flight constructed the apollonicon, an instrument with five manuals, forty-five stops, and three barrels. This ingenious contrivance was exhibited from 1817 until 1840. The partnership with Robson was afterwards dissolved, but Flight continued to interest himself in certain inventions and improvements in the mechanism of organs.

After his father's death in 1847, J. Flight carried on with the business until 1885"
