Garthorpe Church, Lincolnshire 1/5

Standing in a churchyard edged with trees, this beautiful Medieval church, dedicated to St.Mary, was built largely in the 14th. century. The tower is of Lincolnshire limestone built in the Perpendicular style, but the rest of the church is largely built of local ironstone. The interior was tastefully restored in the Victorian era. Sadly the church is now out of use and is looked after by the Churches Conservation Trust.

She looks good in retirement, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little church, we had driven by several times and one day I decided to stop, glad I did.
I like the local stone, it's very pretty!

What a picturesque church, Brian. That it's now out of use is sad, indeed. But thank goodness it's be looked after!

a ice composition of this old church and its surrounding. It's a pity that it is now out of use.

It looks a typical English country church Brian.

Looks such a good place to gather - pity that it ran empty.
Brian Walbey: It is right on the edge of a small village and I guess the congregation got smaller until it became uneconomic to run.
There are many redundant churches and it is good that they are being preserved
Brian Walbey: The Churches Conservation Trust show lots of similar churches on their website, at least they are not being knocked down to build houses in their place!

But very well looked after by the look of it. It looks very typically English - couldn't be anywhere else really.

The stonework does look good. Lets hope they continue to maintain it otherwise the perpendicular style may well end up horizontal.

Such a shame to see them not used. Nice stone work.

It looks a lovely building.
Brian Walbey: It is Anne, it stands right on the edge of a little village all on its own.

Atlas it will be looked after. It certainly deserves to be.
Brian Walbey: It is in good condition at least.
Well, at least it is still standing!
Brian Walbey: And hopefully it will be for a long time to come yet Tom.
