This gateway (known locally as the 'Lion Gate') to Scrivelsby Park dates from the 16th century, but was rebuilt in the 1830s.

The crowned lion reflects the pride of the Dymoke family, who in succession to the related Marmions have held the hereditary title of King's Champion of England from 1350.

A largely Victorian restoration of a medieval church. The tower of St Benedict, Scrivelsby, dates entirely from 1860.

The chancel has original Perpendicular windows whilst the north nave arcade and chapel are Early English.

This church’s true treasures are the monuments to the Marmions and Dymokes who acted as King’s and Queen’s Champions.
