Feature Sets

Ingoldsby is a small village about seven miles SE of Grantham. The church lies to the W of the village and consists of a short nave with N and S aisles that embrace the W tower, a S porch, and a chancel. As Pevsner notes, though the tower, the S aisle, and the Victorian chancel may originally have been from c.1300, they underwent significant renovation during the 17thc. Romanesque sculptural remains are found in the N arcade of the nave.


The Domesday Survey records that in 1066 'Ingoldesby' was held by Ulf Fenman, Kolgrim of Grantham, Godwin of Barrowby, Sinward, and Ingulf; in 1086 the lordship passed to Gilbert of Ghent, Robert Malet, and Walter of Aincourt, and its value remained of £0.5. A church is also mentioned in Domesday Book.


Interior Features



The building was restored in 1858 and then in 1898 most of the chancel was rebuilt.

The waterleaf and nascent stiff-leaf work on the capitals of this arcade suggest a date toward the end of the 12thc.
