St Peter - Threekingham


The church is dedicated to St. Peter ad Vincula (St Peter in chains) and is at the centre of the village of Threekingham (sometimes Threckingham).

This church is reputed to have the best broached spire in England and houses two full-size effigies dating from the 12th century, a knight and his lady; apparently Sir Lambert de Trikyngham,1280, and his wife. He is clad in chain mail and surcoat with shield and feet resting on a lion, she in a flowing gown, feet resting on a hound.


The parish of South Lafford is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Lincoln’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
