A beautiful exterior, original church plus extensions. Very impressive tower that can be spotted from some distance.

This church is located just a short walk away from the centre of Spalding and is open every day. Set in a lovely church yard close to the Ayscoughfee Hall & Gardens so well worth a visit if you are in Spalding.
