St Swithin's church, Lincoln :: Shared Description


Grade II*listed

The original church on this site was destroyed by fire in the 17th Century.
The church is built in Early English style with a western tower and spire, nave and clerestory, north and south aisles, chancel and vestry.
The nave and aisles were built from 1869, the chancel was built about 10 years later, and finally the tower and spire were built in 1884. The architect was James Fowler from Louth, and the cost was largely paid for by the Shuttleworth family.

The nave has six bay arcades, the chancel has a five light east window, with the organ on the north side.
The church can seat up to 1000 persons.

Recently (2014) at the instigation of the Bishop of Lincoln, it was “relaunched” by the HTB Network and Alive Church Lincoln with the aim of revitalising the church.
