Ashby Puerorum - St Andrew

The Church of St Andrew, Ashby Puerorum

Delightful Grade II listed church with outstanding views tucked behind Church Farm. The tower was completed in 1312 and it houses a 3cwt tenor bell from around 1150, believed to be the oldest in England. The church was restored in 1850 and 1878 by Ewan Christian and the windows date from that time. Mounted on the south wall are several 16th century brasses to members of the Littlebury family of Stainsby. In the late 13th Century, the living was appropriated to provide an endowment for the bot choristers of Lincoln Cathedral, hence the name Ashby Puerorum. 

Opening times:
Saturday dawn-dusk
Sunday dawn-dusk
