Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-
"The church of St. John the Evangelist, situated in the centre of the town, and rebuilt in 1842-3 on the site of the earlier church, at an expense of about £2,700, is a building of stone in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, nave, north and south porches and an eastern tower, with pinnacles, containing 6 bells:
the bells were retuned and hung in a new frame in 1912:
the stained west window was erected in 1894 as a memorial to the late Rev. Philip Henry Brierly M.A. vicar 1879-93:
the sedilia were presented in 1893 by Albert Cressey esq.:
part of the outside stone work was restored in 1893 at a cost of £200, and the remainder in 1911 at a cost of £142, and the south porch restored in 1896:
there are 450 sittings"
