Glentworth, Lincolnshire.

Church of St Michael

 

A small village about 12 miles North of Lincoln along the Burton Cliff Road which runs parallel with the A15 road to the east. If the A15 road is taken turn left (west) on the A631 (Gainsborough) at Caenby Corner and turn Left (South) at the first roundabout. Just follow the road until the Glentworth turn off appears to your right.

Proceed into the village until you reach the village hall. Leave your car here and walk the few yards to the church.

St Michael’s Church is well worth seeing as it has stained glass by Kempe in the west window (1882) and the East window by T.F.Curtis of Ward & Hughes (1919) The Nave North side East window by Heaton Butler & Bayne (1928).


Inside are two good monuments; on the left at the East end to Christopher Wray, who died 1592, Lord Chief Justice of England to Queen Elizabeth I, a monument carved 1593; and on the right is a fine standing wall monument in grey & white marble by William Hurst 1714 to Elizabeth Saunderson. In the centre of this there are three winged souls under a baldacchino, there is a column left and right and a pair of Putti. There is also a descriptive text with family history.
