All Saints retains much medieval work, including the 13th century arcades and the 15th century south aisle and porch.

In the 19th century the chancel was rebuilt, and later restorations by Sir G G Scott (and his son) added the rich furnishings and the beautiful mosaic reredos.

Most of the windows have fine Victorian stained glass.

Church viewed from the north.

Kelly's Directory 1913 has "The church of All Saints is a fine edifice of stone in mixed styles, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles, south porch and a western tower containing three bells:

the walls of the chancel are richly painted with frescoes: all the windows are stained, and a carved oak screen divides the chancel from the nave; the open oak benches in the chancel, carved by Mr. Swaby, of Marsh Chapel, were fixed in 1851, when the chancel was rebuilt under the direction of Mr. Nicholson, architect, of Lincoln, at the cost of the Rev. Edw. Franks Hodgson M.A. rector 1844-82:

in 1859 extensive repairs were effected under the supervision of the late Sir G. G. Scott R.A. at a cost of £1,200, the north arcade, both aisles and a mortuary chapel being restored, and the whole roof renewed; a new pulpit was also erected, an elaborate cover, enriched with iron work, placed over the font, and the interior reseated:

there are 130 sittings".

"The Cl9 chancel has 3 polished limestone steps to the altar, fine tiled floors and a handsome marble and mosaic reredos"

https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1064035 

Local signage states that :-

"The mosaic on the reredos is by Italian, Antonio Salviati and is dated 1867. It was designed by Robert Jewell Withers. By 1867 Salviati had already installed Venetian mosaics into over 50 Cathedrals and Churches in England but this appears to be the only one in a Lincolnshire Church. 

Salviati mosaics can be found on every continent excluding of course Antarctica. 

Satviati is credited with the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral and the hall in the Houses of Parliament. The Salviati factory is still operating today in Murano, Italy"
