Off the A158 Lincoln to Skegness road, the small church of Holy Trinity, Hagworthingham, is a greenstone building of medieval origins  drastically restored by James Fowler of Louth in 1859.

The tower fell down in 1972.

This postcard, probably from early twentieth-century, shows the broad tower of greenstone and brick.

The bell openings in the tower and all the windows elsewhere in the building are Victorian.

Seen from the south, the rather awkward modification of the nave roof and buttressing of the west wall following the removal of the tower is apparent.

Holy Trinity's font dates from the fifteenth century and is a simple octagonal shape on a shafted base.

This striking gold mount is set with a green glass setting and decorated with strips of beaded gold wire.

Damage to one end shows that it is hollow, and the damaged area probably represents the place where a suspension loop once was, making the mount a pendant.

Further glass or precious stones would have been set into the smaller circular mounts around the edges.

This fine item of jewellery is currently unparalleled in Britain, though it has been cautiously dated on stylistic grounds to the later Roman period.

Stockwith Mill is on the River Lymn about one mile north-east of Hagworthingham village centre.

The mill, with its breastshot waterwheel, was built in 1828 on the site of an earlier mill.

This tower mill dates from at least 1816, maybe earlier.

It operated with four pairs of stones from the mid-nineteenth century until it closed during the Second World War.

In 1950 the cap was replaced by a pitched roof and the remaining two sails were removed.
