The well known and much loved medieval "Ramblers' Church" at Walesby sits beside the Viking Way long-distance footpath high on the edge of the Wolds looking out across an expanse of Lincolnshire countryside.

The Early English tower is well buttressed against the westerly wind and weather.

Inside All Saints church at Walesby are box pews and a thirteenth century drum-shaped font.

The pulpit of 1626, with its attractive tester, came from St Leonard's Chapel, Kirkstead.

This photograph shows the capital over one of the octagonal piers in the south arcade.

The square of concrete covers the Walesby Shaft, off Walesby Hill (TF143 932).

It was sunk by the Frodingham Iron and Steel Company in about 1919.

The scrub covered mound behind is the spoil removed from the 175 feet deep shaft. From the foot a tunnel was driven horizontally for some 217 feet.

Although beds of ironstone were proved they were very contorted and no mine went into production as a result.
