The interior of St Botolph when still in use. It looks almost as bare and grim as it does now. Not a good advertisement for the Victorian practice of 'scraping'.
Postcard postmarked Louth 1914.
The tower of St Botolph's dates from the fourteenth century.
The earliest parts of St Botolph's date from the thirteenth century. It is a Grade I Listed building.
Standing in glorious isolation, the church of St Botolph, Skidbrooke, has a large 14th century nave.
The chancel arch is in the Early English style whilst the clerestory and tower are Perpendicular.
It is now looked after by the Churches Conservation Trust after many years of being abandoned.
