St Luke's Church, Stickney
The entry for Stickney in the Domesday Book of 1086 shows that Ivo Taillbois was Lord of the Parish. He was an influential Normal commander at the Battle of Hastings. The record also states that Stickney had a church but nothing remains of that building today.
The present church is in the Early English style of the 13th century but has been much altered and renovated.
The porch was rebuilt in its original style in 1837 by architect Bassett Smith preserving the gargoyles, stone roof and stone seats. The south doorway is in the decorated style of the 14th century and the windows in the south aisle are 15th century.
The nave was last restored in 1855 at the cost of £677. It has four bay arcades supported by quatrefoil piers. All are leaning very much out of the perpendicular. The roof beams are supported on ancient corbels with face carvings.
It is recorded that Civil War troops of Oliver Cromwell stayed at Stickney in 1642 while on their way to siege Bolingbroke Castle.
The north aisle was rebuilt in 1793 and the priestís door here was bricked up. The chancel was rebuilt in 1853.
The tower is essentially perpendicular in style and, like the west doorway and window is 15th century.
