St Benedict's church, Lincoln :: Shared Description

Saint Benedict's church is one of the three remaining medieval churches in Lincoln.
It was originally much larger, and what remains is the chancel and north Chapel of the church built by Robert Tattershall in 1378.
The original nave and tower were destroyed during the Civil War, and the Bell tower was rebuilt around 1670. The bell dates from before 1585.
The east end has a piscina from around 1108, and the remains of a sedilia of pre-1350.
There is a canopied tomb from circa 1350 on the south wall.
The church was saved from demolition in the 1930s. It is now the headquarters of the mother's union in the diocese of Lincoln, and also used as a day centre and cafe.
