An important amendment to the text in the brochure (p32) for Fotherby St. Mary, LN11 0UH. This church is open both days, not just Sunday as advertised, with times being Saturday 10th (10am to 4pm) and Sunday 11th (10am to 2pm).
Late additions to the plans also include an exhibition on the recent, very successful, Jubilee celebrations, showing what happened over the four days and also displaying memorabilia from previous Jubilees, dating back 70 years. Light refreshments will be available on both days. Other display boards towards the rear of the church contain photographs taken that highlight the full life of the church and the village. These are changed frequently. An information stand in this same area contains several publications relating to the village, documenting special events from previous years. A bookcase in the rear lobby contains second-hand books for sale. This church was rebuilt in 1863 under the direction of Louth architect James Fowler. The external walls are made mostly of Ancaster stone and internally lined with red brick. Features from the original building remain and include the arch leading to the tower, the font and the three bells which had hung in the old church since the 16th century. Outside there is the tomb of Everitt Allenby Esq. the benefactor who financed much of the rebuild. We hope you will enjoy your visit to our church.
(Apologies to this church from the festival organisers for the error in the brochure).
