St. Mary’s Church, Carlton le Moorland
The church is approached through the parish lych-gate, erected as a War Memorial after the Great War. The Victorian stained glass windows depicting scenes from the life of Jesus are perhaps the most striking feature of the church interior. The building has 11th,13th,15th and late 16th century features and was restored by Fowler in the last decade of the nineteenth century. The most recent additions to the church are the air-source heating units, the first in the diocese of Lincoln.

Work is proceeding well inside the church, see the photograph below of the new floor for the servery area.
The building programme is well under way at St.Mary’s Church. All the trenches for the main services have been dug, completed and back filled. An archaeologist was on site during all the excavation work. Nothing of any consequence was found. The heater has been repositioned and the base of the new floor at the back of the church has been laid. We hope that the progress can be maintained so our Easter re-opening of the church becomes a possibility
The trench has been dug this week for the drains
