The domed top to the tower is a special feature of the Gayton church tower which shows well from the roads approaching the village. On the four corners are the emblems of the evangelists, now much weathered. They are the winged man for St Matthew, a lion for St Mark, an ox for St Luke and an eagle for St John.
Location. Towards the eastern end of the village on the B1145. Map reference TF 730192.

Car parking is available on the south side of the church – accessed from Back Street through the entrance to Church Farm Barns. Toilets are available at service and event times. They are not open to the public at other times to prevent vandalism.
