St Andrew
 

The Church
Also known as the Hikers' Church, or the Old Church.

Restored in the 1930s by the late Canon N S Harding, this lonely church stood in ruins for a long time prior to his generosity. Nave arcades are Transitional period, and has a substantial tower with stepped angle-buttresses. The 17th C. pulpit was formerly used by the Presbyterians at Kirkstead, Lincs. The box-pews unfortunately had to be removed at the time of the restoration because of the ravages of dry-rot, but a few of them were preserved in the north aisle.
