St Edith's church, Coates

Grade I listed.

The church dates from the 12th century onwards. The West end has a blocked medieval arch which may once have led to a tower, or perhaps the tower was planned but never built. The late Norman entrance door with dogtooth ornament may date from around 1200.
There is a western double bell turret.
Most of the windows are 15th century as are the bench ends and the Rood screen and loft. This is probably the most complete example surviving in a Lincolnshire parish church. Many of these screens were removed during the Tudor reformation.
There are the remains of a 13th century Easter Sepulchre in the North wall of the chancel.
The church was sympathetically restored in 1883 by J.L. Pearson, who preserved the Norman tub font and medieval benches, but removed the Georgian box pews and pulpit which was originally medieval.
There are several fine memorials and tombs in the church, and also a brass to William Butler who died at the age of 26 in 1590, and his wife Elizabeth. Between them is the swaddled figure of their only child Priscilla, who died an infant, still in "chrison robe", died 1509.
There is also a brass to Charles Butler and his wife Douglass Tyrwhit. Also included are their eight named children, the three who died young are holding skulls.
There is also a memorial to Brian Cooke of Doncaster, who was a Butler relation by marriage.
