Monksthorpe Baptist chapel and baptistry
It says outside on the outside of the church that adult baptisms can still be arranged. See TF4565 : Monksthorpe Baptist chapel

An open-air baptistry is in the grounds of Monksthorpe and was also used by the congregation at Burgh-le-Marsh until they had their own baptistry in 1873, which was used for the first time on 2nd March of that year. The congregation at Monksthorpe was formed when it was unsafe to worship within a town and so the congregation of Burgh-le-Marsh met at the Preaching Croft and so were part of the founding of Monksthorpe Baptist Church. The two churches have been linked since formation and this is further detailed in the 'History' Pages. The baptistry was filled by flooding in water from the dyke behind it. That can't happen now as the water-table is lower than it was due to drainage work.

The baptistry was last used in 1972. See LinkExternal link
