Next to a farmyard on the Lincoln Heath stands a tower of the Knights Templar church which was built here in the early 13th century amid their extensive estates.

The church had a circular nave and a chancel flanked by two towers.

The photo shows the N and E faces of the surviving S tower.

St John's stands at an isolated position by a minor road junction on the heath between Lincoln and Sleaford.

It was built at a time when there were many farm labourers living within the area.

The wooden bell turret and spire add some interest to a plain building.

The building to the left is the former school, now used as a church hall.
