St Luke's church, Holton le Moor
Grade II listed.

A church has stood on this spot for 1000 years with the original foundations thought to be Saxon. There have been two major restorations: that of 1854 by George Place of Nottinghamshire in the Early English style and in 1926 the church was enlarged at the instigation of the Reverend G Dixon, Squire of Holton with the architect being H G Gamble of Nottingham and the funds being raised from the sale of timber from the Holton Estate.

The South aisle contains some of the oldest parts of the church which are of ironstone. The main doorway, widened in 1854, dates from the Norman conquest. The Holy Water Stoup near the door, with its 13th century capital was used as a font prior to the 1926 enlargement of the church.
The nave is plain, and all fittings are C19 or C20.

The font is hexagonal, a modern reconstruction of 12th C. fragments of a circular tub.
There are memorial tablets to the Dixon family of the local Holton Hall in the church.
