Delightful Grade II listed church built of local greenstone; tucked behind Church Farm commanding outstanding views of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Housing a 3cwt tenor bell from 1150, believed to be the oldest in England. Historic links to the Cathedral and Bishop Oliver Sutton who gave Ashby Puerorum its name. On the nave wall there is a group of 7 brasses of Richard Lytleburye (d.1521) a knight from Stainsby and his wife Ely. There is a second brass by the door of a knight in arms (1560) who is thought to be one of Richard Lytleburye’s sons.
