Church of St Luke, Haycorns Gatehouse Road, Holton le Moor
Grade II Listed Parish Church. A Church has stood on this spot for approximately 1000 years. There have been two major restorations: that of 1854 by George Place of Nottingham in the Early English style, and in 1926 the Church was enlarged at the instigation of the Reverend T G Dixon, Squire of Holton. The architect was H G Gamble of Nottingham, and the funds for the work were raised by the sale of timber from the Holton Estate. The original foundation is thought to have been Saxon and there was a Chapel here attached to the Mother Church of Caistor when the Domesday Book was compiled. The main doorway, widened in the 1854 reconstruction, dates from the Norman Conquest. Two cable moulding stones incorporated into the font in 1926 are of similar date, previous to the 1926 enlargement, the Holy Water stoop near the door, with its 13th Century capital, was used as a font. The original bell had the inscription 'Nicholass Bestoe 1634'. The bell hung in a wooden bell tower from which it fell in 1847. Subsequently it was recast to form two bells placed in a 3-niche bell turret. When this became unsafe, the present 2-niche turret was built to house the bells. To mark the start of the New Millennium in 2000, the bells were overhauled and the clappers and bell wheels renewed in 1999.
