This church is well known for its good 'broach' spire, but
it is also set in a picturesque corner of a lovely village.
Interesting buildings abound in its vicinty.
The earliest parts of the church date from around 1190 but
it mainly dates from1240, and it was then that the belfry
stage of the tower was added (the bit under the spire), complete
with Early English lancet windows and dog tooth ornament (see
Melton too). The spire was added
in the 14th century, and Cantor says that it was much admired
by the Victorians as being 'perfect'.
The churchyard contains many interesting Ketton stone headstones,
some of which can be seen in the foreground of the photo.
