Grade II*listed

One of four churches with this dedication in Lincolnshire, Saint Hybald was a Saxon Saint who died in circa 690.
The church dates from the 12th century onwards, and once belonged to the Knights Templar.
It was partly rebuilt in the mid 19th century following a fire.
There is a west tower with a spire, nave, north porch, chancel, and vestry.
The tower dates from the 13th century, although has been much restored. There is a battlemented parapet with gargoyles and recessed octagonal spire with one tier of lucarnes. There are five bells.
The nave has a three bay arcade, however the north aisle has gone and a wall was built just north of the piers.
The north door has a 13th century arch with dogtooth decoration.
The font is from the early 14th century being a hexagonal bowl on a square base decorated with fleurons.
At the west end of the nave there is a fragment of a tombstone to Isabel de la Launde from c. 1400.
The nave roof is a 19th-century hammer beam with carved Angels.
The chancel contains a monument to Edward King, died 1617, and his two wives. On the opposite wall is the other half of the original monument, namely his children. It was originally all one.

There is a small single manual organ attributed to Flight and Robson from the early 19th century.
