Coates by Stow, Lincolnshire

    Newer Older

    Coates by Stow church is set in a remote farmyard in the Lincolnshire countryside. It serves a farm and a scattering of cottages. As a consequence of its isolation it has retained most of its pre-Reformation fittings intact. Including a rood with rood loft and projecting Gospel lectern, panelled tympanum decorated with the remains of a rood with attendant figures of Mary and John, a medieval pulpit, easter sepulchre and rustic benches. An amazing and atmospheric building.

      What a beautiful place Allan. You obviously went back to Lincolnshire for Easter.

      Yes we did go to Lincs for a couple of days. I only managed to get two churches in though and both were repeat visits.
