The north arcade (to the left) is essentially Norman - though heavily restored in 1860 by J H Hakewill.

The south arcade (to the right) is of similar date (piers and capitals) but the arches are later.

Pevsner is dismissive of Hakewill's chancel arch.

The interior of the church of St John Baptist, Ermine, Lincoln, which was designed by local architect Sam Scorer and opened in 1963.

Scorer's design, with its central sanctuary, was based on the ideas of the New Churches Research Group, formed in 1957.

The colourful window in the east wall was designed by Keith New at the Royal College of Art.

The earliest parts of the church of St German are the tower and chancel arches which date from circa 1200.

The nave was rebuilt in 1796, with further restoration in the nineteenth century, and the chancel was rebuilt in 1904.

The Perpendicular upper stage of the tower may date from 1590 when the bells were re-hung.

According to Pevsner, the position of the tower (north of the church's east-west axis) suggests there was once a north aisle, but the chancel and chancel arch (symmetrically positioned) contradict this supposition.

Perhaps the N arcade was taken out before the chancel arch was built, surmises Pevsner.

The chapel to Walmsgate Hall was built in 1901 by the Dallas Yorkes in memory of their son.

After the demolition of the hall in the 1950s the chapel was dismantled and partly re-erected as a church in Langworth near Lincoln.

The contemporary art nouveau fittings of the chapel are typified by the hanging lamp in the centre of this photograph.

The arcades date from the medieval period, unlike the external fabric of the church.

The north arcade (on the left) has four bays and dates from the fourteenth cventury; the south, of three bays, is thirteenth century.
