The site of the former church of St Andrew, Claxby Pluckacre
The site of the former church of St Andrew, Claxby Pluckacre
Years ago, here in Claxby Pluckacre where the cattle now graze; there once stood a church. The Cassini Historical maps of 1824, have it as demolished. I would like to know when it became redundant, but both the Library and the Archives in Lincoln seem unable to help. I can't even find out if Claude Nattes painted it. Nattes painted the churches of Lincolnshire, under the superintendence of Sir Joseph Banks. The Lincoln Library holds the paintings, but photographic copies of the paintings don't include this church, so maybe it wasn't around even then.

Edit - I have since found out that the church was dedicated to St Andrew and that it fell down on 1 August 1748 and was not rebuilt.
