Legsby is a small village in the West Lindsey district of L:incolnshire, 3 miles SE of Market Rasen and 13 miles NE of Lincoln. The church is in the village centre and has a W tower with a N vestry, nave, and chancel. The earliest parts of the building date from the 13thc, including the chancel and tower arches and there are signs of work done in the 16thc and the upper parts of the tower are 18thc. It is built of squared sandstone rubble, and there is a 12thc font.


Alsige had 1 carucate of ploughland here before the Conquest, held by Everard from William de Percy in 1086. It is unclear which St Thomas is intended by the dedication.





The font at nearby Cabourne also has a double row of cable moulding around the rim.
