St Andrew's Church
A large and beautiful church built of golden-brown ironstone, as is most of the village. Late Perpendicular in style with a large, well proportioned nave and interesting chancel. The Laudian, four-sided altar rails are very unusual and date from 1635. There are also some interesting wall paintings.
High up in the chancel walls there are some acoustic jars, installed in mediaeval times to improve the acoustics of the building.
St Andrew's Church is still noted for its acoustics and is much in demand for concerts and for making recordings.
Next door to the church stands the Bede House. This is a remnant of the ancient palace of the Bishops of Lincoln. The Bede House is managed by English Heritage and is open during the summer months.
St Andrew's church is undergoing restoration at the moment and will be closed to visitors until the end of November. Sunday worship continues but with some adjustments. Worship on the first and second sundays takes place in the chancel. The third Sunday Family Service takes place in the Village Hall and on the fourth sunday we join with Harringworth for Parish Communion at 9.30am.
