St Mary Magdalene church, Lincoln

Grade II listed

The church dates from the late thirteenth century and was rebuilt in 1695, being remodelled in 1882 by Bodley.

It has a square tower of three stages with a crenellated parapet and remains of gargoyles.
There is a nave with a five bay north arcade and barrel vaulted wooden roof. The chancel has an oak screen by Bodley with the organ to the north. The east end has a gradine with a high level five-light east window.

The original Saxon church lies buried beneath parts of the Cathedral, and indeed parishioners have the right to hold services in the Cathedral, traditionally the Morning Chapel.

The current site was granted by Bishop Sutton circa 1280, and the church contains fragments of the original mediaeval building including a bell dating from circa 1350.
In the seventeenth century the church was rebuilt after the Civil War, and restored by Bodley.

There is a two manual organ with pedals, originally by Nicholson of Lincoln which was subsequently rebuilt by Cousans.
