St John the Baptist, Great Carlton

St John the Baptist Church, Great Carlton lies within Great Carlton village, screened behind trees with a long drive, described in "The King's England" of 1949: "... as having an approach unsurpassed in all Lincolnshire," leading to the car park.

It serves the villages of Great and Little Carlton as a Community Church, holding two services per month, one Holy Communion and the other a locally led Morning Prayer Service. There are afternoon village services on the main festivals and special services and events throughout the year.

The church is open daily between 10am and 4pm for viewing (except on Christmas, Boxing and New Year's day).
