About

Set in three acres of mature gardens and woodland, in the pretty heart of Washingborough village. We are just a little over 2 miles east of the centre of the historic City of Lincoln. Originally built aroundWashingborough Hall Hotel, Lincoln is privately owned and managed. Since great care has been taken to retain the elegant Georgian character, whilst lovingly refurbishing the country house hotel.

Description

Note: Where an image is shown in the guide below, it can be clicked on to view a larger image. Washingborough has been inhabited since the Bronze age, roughly years ago and was at one time an important metal-working site. Entry to the churchyard is by a pair of wrought iron gates and piers by Harrisons of Beverly, These fine gates are Grade II listed.

There is also a doorway in the boundary wall to the adjacent Washingborough Hall which in the past was the Rectory. The present church was begun in around and would have consisted of a tower about half the current height and a nave. It's likely that this replaced an earlier building.

There is a four bay arcade, most of the pillars seem to be a little later, probably reflecting an early extension. The tower was extended in the Decorated style, sometime in the early 's. At that time, the large Norman arches in the lower stage of the tower were replaced, a tower window inserted in the west side and the chancel added. Somewhat later, the tower pinnacles, the tower buttresses and probably the stair turret were added in the Perpendicular style.

Above each of the bell windows is a grotesque. These are not gargoyles as they do not carry water from the roof. They may have done so in the past but there is now an internal downpipe.

The clock was made by William Thomas of Lincoln in There was a major restoration between and initially by Sir George Gilbert Scott the chancel and then by Scott and Henry Goddard the rest of the building. Much of the exterior of the church was rebuilt at this time.

New clerestory windows were inserted, new roofs and probably the small east window in the tower. The floor of the church was lowered a few years later, to make the chancel more imposing but this means it isn't possible to enter the building without going down steps. However, wheelchair access is available via the vestry door. Externally, the church is well proportioned and sits in a commanding position.

The churchyard has been extended to the north on two occasions. The oldest burials are to the south. In this area are the oldest gravestones, from the 18th century but now illegible.

The east window has complex tracery and beneath it is a stone commemorating the restoration of and with the initials of Rev. Humphrey Waldo-Sibthorp. Also inset in the east wall is a memorial slab which re. To the north is the vestry door and the old heating chimney, long unused.

The north aisle wall was rebuilt inthe larger windows inserted and the ground lowered close to the wall. On the tower walls can be seen the 'putlog' holes where wooden scaffolding was erected as the tower was extended. These holes, which don't go all the way through the wall, have been inhabited by generations of jackdaws.

Other than substantially larger blocks of stone, there is little to distinguish the earlier, lower part of the tower. The south porch is a later addition. In three places the stones in the exterior and interior arches have old graffiti although the stones have been inverted in a rebuild. There may be a part of a scratched Mass dial a sundial that marked service times on the right of the outer arch. Part of the south aisle has been rebuilt.

The east-most window is the same pattern as those in the north aisle. Beneath this window is an incised fragment, possibly a coffin lid. The chancel has a low side window. These windows have sometimes been known as Leper Windows and were supposed to have afforded any lepers, who were forbidden to enter the church, a view of the altar. This was not the case here and it is more likely the window was inserted to afford more ventilation or extra light to the area.

The other windows clearly show their newer stonework against older sections of wall. There is a door way, currently not in use, and next to it is the remains of a memorial to a veiled lady, possibly contemporary with a similar monument inside.

On the left as you enter is the font. Originally contemporary with the Norman tower this is very crisp and was probably re-cut around the time of the great restoration of In the form of lead-lined drum it sits on what may be its original pedestal. The lid is not original and seems to be part of a piece of furniture.

Nearby is a retired Mother's Union Banner. The two pillars closest to the font are octagonal and at the top of the one next to the tower is the remains of some Norman decoration known as scalloping. There are traces of medieval paint here too. This arch is massive and imposing and now offers a view into the ringing chamber. This was ly blocked up with wooden panelling. It is easy to trace the original, round Norman arch. Above the arch is the George III coat of arms painted on canvas which once hung in the chancel arch.

The bottom of the the work has been removed. Close to the roof is a recycled large stone with an engraved basic floral pattern and the name J GERRY written on, probably in pencil.

The tower. The tower is kept locked. At the base of the tower is the choir vestry, above that is the ringing room, where the bellringers meet. In the room above is the clock. Set into the west wall in this room is a Norman arch that may have been a window or possibly a doorway for a ladder.

Just below the bell-openings are the bells. The tower roof has a low parapet. There are eight bells, by three different founders and a small Sanctus bell. Weights are in cwt-qrts-lbs. The bells are in tune with each other but not with any other instrument.

The tenor note is about halfway between F and F. The Sanctus bell is a small bell by unknown Nottingham founder of around When the bells were augmented to eight in they were all out of the tower for a while. The wooden bellframe probably dating from was modified to carry the new bells.

By the end of the 20th century, this frame was giving cause for concern and in December it was finally condemned. The bells are rung every Sunday except on a few occasions when the service takes place elsewhere. Practice night is Wednesday unless there is a fifth Wednesday, when the ringers practice elsewhere.

The bells out of the tower in when two more were added by Taylors of Loughborough. Here is the village war memorial, first installed to commemorate those who died in WWI but added to with bronze plaques to remember those who died in WWII and in Korea. There is also a framed list of all who served in the Great War. Interestingly, the date on which the war ended has not been added as presumably the list was produced after the Armistice of November and before the Treaty of Versailles in June Further, the list mentions some of those killed in action but not all of them. There is a large wooden chest here, the 15th century Garrett Trustee Chest, which came from Heighington church.

The vestry arch. This arch le into the parish office, formally the vestry and organ space. The north side column is plain but the south side has a small carved face where the arch meets the wall. Above the arch it can be seen that the height and pitch of the roof has been altered twice.

A fine wooden pulpit made in as a memorial to the Rev John Dudding.

This replaced an earlier pulpit which stood about three feet to the north of the present one. Various memorials and some of the church plate here are dealt with separately. There is an archway into the parish office. The west column is plain but the capital of the east column has some carved foliage, probably the best work in the building. The altar is a wooden table, probably Victorian.
