Historic sites

We care for several historic sites in Lincolnshire and believe that everyone should have the chance to enjoy and learn about them by holding regular events, talks, and open days for the public.

Please note that Tattershall College is currently closed to the public for safety reasons. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Some of our sites are situated within their own grounds and are perfect for exploring with budding knights and princesses while discovering the wildlife that thrives there. Don’t forget your camera and your swords and shields!

Lincolnshire Churches

Discover the wonder of Lincolnshire’s sacred heritage.

Telling the stories of past lives in the county’s rural villages, cities and market towns, churches bring to life the history of Lincolnshire in such an exciting way.

From medieval stained glass to angels in rooves, monumental murders to the instigator of Magna Carta, rebellious vicars in the Lincolnshire Rising to intrepid explorers of the seven seas,  a king’s mistress to the founder of Methodism, a celebration of faith to a shelter on a pilgrimage.

Every church has a story to tell…
