Cadney All Saints Church, England


Cadney All Saints Church, Lincolnshire, England

This evening, I am posting information on the small village church of Cadney, about 30 miles north of Lincoln in eastern England.

Important facts and features:

  • Probably built on a Bronze Age (3300 BC to 1200 BC) burial mound.
  • First Christian church was probably of wooden construction and dates from the Saxon period (second half of first millennium).
  • Existing church consists of a western tower, Nave, South aisle and Chancel.
  • 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.
  • New windows in the Decorated style were added in the mid 14th century.
  • 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.
  • Extensive restoration undertaken during 1912-13 at cost of GBP1000.00.

The church was open during my visit and I took the opportunity to purchase some conserves on sale inside which benefited church funds.
