The greenstone church of St Margaret in Thimbleby is mostly the 1879 work of the ubiquitous James Fowler of Louth.

Parts of one Decorated window and an early sedilia survive.

Closed at present (2013), the Friends of St Margaret’s Church are working hard to raise funds for its restoration.

This sketch of the former Georgian church of St Margaret's, built 1744, is hung inside near the entrance. This building predates the present Victorian church (James Fowler, 1879) and stood on the same site.

They have recent alterations, but were built in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

This pump, on the village main street, has been in use until relatively recently. It dates from 1857 and is Grade II Listed for its group value.

The notice on the pump casing reads: "This water is unfit to drink”
