Church of St Nicholas, Church Lane, Ulceby - North Lincolnshire (UA)

Large mainly ironstone village centre church with unusually tall spire dating from C13. The nave roof was raised in C15 and clerestory was added, and restored again in C19. The chancel was largely rebuilt during this last restoration, also both porches. The walls now display a varied assemblage of materials- chalk and brick being used in the chancel and aisles to replace eroded ironstone. There are long term roof leaks which have left the interior very damp. The tower masonry is much eroded and there is some loose high level stonework. The building has been subject to heritage crime.
