The tower of All Saints in Hemswell dates from 1764 and the rest of the exterior from 1858.

Inside are an Early English north arcade and Decorated sedilia.

Worth visiting during the annual West Lindsey Churches Festival when parish records and scrapbooks containing village history are usually on display.

RAF Hemswell was used by RAF Bomber Command from 1937 to 1957.

Construction of the buildings, including this water tower, was from 1935-36.

This design was used at other RAF stations of the same period.  The tower is made of reinforced concrete.
