A Little History of St Mary and All Saints

Three great families dominated the village from the 12th century until the time of Henry VIII. A Sheriff of Lincoln, Philip de Kyme founded a Priory of Augustinian Canons and a small part, the south aisle of its massive cross shaped Priory church, still survives as St Mary and All Saints and much of that was rebuilt in the early 19th century. T                                        he Church is a high building with no traditional tower or spire. The great porch has a fine entrance arch under a niche with a worn sculpture of the Coronation of the Virgin.
Much older than all else in the church there are fragments of stone in the north wall with knotwork and other ornament certainly carved by Saxons.

A wall monument supported by figures of Time and Death is in memory of a Parish Clerk's son who after being apprenticed to a tailor went to London and made his fortune. After his death in 1711, the poor folk of his native village had much to thank him for and praise the name of  Marmaduke Dickinson.

When the church was restored in 1805 the family vault of the Tailboys was uncovered. Inside, coffins of a man and three children were discovered. Surprisingly one coffin had been filled with spirit which had preserved the child’s body intact.
