The Church of St Mary Magdalene in Rothwell lies close to a village in the heart of the Wolds.

St Mary Magdalene has an Anglo-Saxon tower, normal arcades and a chancel which was restored in 1892 by Sedding*.

* Pevsner attributes this to John Dando Sedding (1838-91) - maybe one of his last commissions. Alternatively it may have been Edmund Harold Sedding (1863-1921), his nephew.

The small doorway in the west face of the tower is typically Anglo-Saxon. It has plain chamfered imposts, a plain tympanum and a hoodmould - all heavily weathered.
