buttresses with offsets, stages divided by moulded string courses. C19
pointed west door of 5 roll-moulded and filleted orders beneath crocketed
ogee hood flanked by pinnacled buttress shafts. Door with Perpendicular-

outer chamfer and inner order on plain moulded corbels. Black marble
floorslab in tower to Sir Francis Coventry of 1687 with Latin marginal
inscription. Wall tablets in chancel: to Rev John Parkinson of 1793; to Rev

with carved brackets, cornice and pediment; to Elizabeth Iles of 1834 with
carved brackets, moulded cornice and draped urn. C19 fittings and font.
Archaeological excavations in advance of building on the south side of the
church in 1975 revealed foundations of 1C13 south aisle which partly
embraced the chancel, and evidence of a pre-Conquest church. Similarities
with the towers at Aylesby and Immingham (qv) suggest a date between 1550-
1650. N Pevsner and J Harris, The Buildings of England: Lincolnshire, 1978,
