Scrivelsby, St Benedict

All the details, opening times etc., below are specific to this year’s Festival weekend that is now finished. Put next year’s date in your diary – Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September 2018.

Scrivelsby Church, which is shared by the parishes of Scrivelsby and Dalderby, has evolved over the last eight centuries. The church built mainly of green stone dates back to the 13th century. Major restoration took place in 1860 by Sir Henry Dymoke, when a North-west tower was added. At that time, he also replaced the slate roof.

The arches of the nave are early English, the chancel arch and church itself perpendicular, while the windows show three different styles. The monuments are especially interesting, including two stone effigies of Sir Philip Marmion and his wife. He was both a statesman and warrior who fought at the battle of Evesham and was granted lands well outside the confines of Lincolnshire.

The Churchwardens will be on hand from 2.00 to 5.00pm on 10th September to act as guides and provide drinks and cakes.
