Church of St John the Baptist, High Street, Scampton - West Lindsey

Dating from C14, the church had a major restoration by Bodley & Garner 1876-7. This would appear to be the date of the nave and chancel roof structures. The church lies on the edge of the village and is surrounded by a churchyard, part of which contains the graves of 64 airmen, maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Repair work to the north aisle, vestry and chancel roofs funded by a Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund grant is complete. The nave roof is still leaking and requires renewal.
