This evening, I am posting information on the small village church of Cadney in Lincolnshire, England a few miles S.E.of Scunthorpe.

  • The Nave is the earliest part of the building and dates from middle 12th century.The font also dates from this period.
  • During the early 12th century a tower was built, the south aisle extended and a new chancel built.

  • Piscina made in Lady Chapel during mid 14th century.
  • During 15th century a porch was added and the tower heightened by a small measure.
  • By 18th century the building had fallen into decay.North aisle demolished in 1780.
  • Inside are a pair of oak screens which date from latter part of 15th century.
  • There is an interior wall painting dating from 1724.
