St Giles' church, Lincoln :: Shared Description

Grade II listed

The church was originally designed in 1720 by William Smith as the church of St Peter at Arches, Lincoln. This was demolished in 1930 and re-erected and extended in 1936 by William Watkins of Lincoln. The plan of the rebuilt church was similar but the size was increased by one bay.
It is built in 20th century brick with 18th-century ashlar dressings and copper roofs.

The church consists of an eastern tower, nave with north and south aisles, a chancel with apps and a north vestry.
The church is not aligned east-west in the normal way.

The tower is of four stages and has a door to the east. The top part of the tower has a balustrade with urns at each corner with wind vanes.
Most of the windows in the church are round headed.

To the north there is a single story vestry.

The nave has five bay arcades with Doric piers and round arches with keystones. At the east end there is a large wooden gallery with the organ.
The west end has an apse with aumbry and piscina. There is no window above the altar.
There is a Chapel at the west end of the south aisle. At the west end of the north aisle there is a doorway to the vestry with reset fragments of 12th century stonework.

There are some 19th-century stained-glass windows, the other windows are clear.
