St.James' church, Louth, Lincs.
St.James' church, Louth, Lincs.
One of the finest churches in all England ! St.James' has a 295 ft high spire ... from wherever you approach Louth, you can see the spire of St.James', this view is looking east down Westgate. Begun in 1501 and completed in 1515 it cost 305.7s.5d to build - a fantastic Tudor achievement. The weathercock, which was placed in position on Holy Rood eve, 1515, was made out of a copper basin taken two years previously from the Scottish king, by the men of Lindsey, at the battle of Flodden. The (in)famous architect James Fowler, responsible for so many Lincolnshire church 'restorations' in the 19th century has his memorial in the nave.
