The nave, chancel and tower of All Saints were rebuilt during the 19th century.

Much remains from medieval times, however, notably the early 13th century south arcade and the 15th century nave roof.

Buttresses at the south-east corner of the chancel are made from chalk and ironstone.

All Saints' church is one of a few surviving Wolds buildings in which chalk has been used.

Elkington Hall, in South Elkington, was a relatively plain brick building in Italianate style, relieved by a substantial tower.

It was built in 1841-42 for the Smyth family by Edward Buckton Lambe. (Smyth also rebuilt the nave of the church.)

It remained in the Smyth family until the estate was sold in the 1930s. The house was demolished in the 1960s.

More details about this house and its owners can be found in T R Leach and R Pacey's book, 'Lost Lincolnshire Country Houses: Volume 1', published by SLHA.  Buy a copy.
