ALL SAINTS CHURCH

DESCRIPTION + /

A parish church, now closed, dating to the 11th century, possibly earlier and altered in the 13th,14th, 16th and 17th century and restored in 1886 by James Fowler of Louth. The church is now used as a storehouse.
Built of chalk rubble with ironstone blocks and red brick with stone coped slate roofs, the building comprises a nave with western bellcote, chancel and south porch.
Within the chancel is a railed tomb enclosure containing two tombs of the Grant family, died 1838. The stained glass in the east window is by Warrington circa 1904.
The church stands in the area of Wyham medieval settlement which can be seen as earthworks and would have probably been contemporary with the settlement occupation and served as parish church for the village. The early 19th century rectory lies 55 metres to the south east of the church.
