Feature Sets

Heapham is a village in the West Lindsey district of the county, 5 miles SE of Gainsborough and 12 miles N of Lincoln. The church is set in fields to the N of the village centre. It is built of limestone rubble and ashlar, and consists of a rendered 11thc W tower to which clasping buttresses were added in the 14thc; a nave with a Saxon S doorway under an 18thc porch, and a N aisle with a 13thc arcade. The chancel is largely 13thc. work too. There was a restoration in the 19thc. The only Romanesque feature described here is the font.


In 1086 Heapham was held by Earl Edwin in 1066 and by the king in 1086, with 2½ carucates of ploughland. There were 16 sokemen there with 4 ploughs and 120 acres of meadow. Another holding was a berewick of Lea, held by Fulcric and his 2 brothers, and by Ulfkil, in 1066, and by Robert from Count Alan of Britanny in 1086. It was assessed for geld at 4 bovates.
