Church of St Swithin, Free School Lane, Lincoln - Lincoln

Built in the 1860s-70s by James Fowler of Louth and considered by Pevsner to be 'without doubt his most important church'. In the Early English style. Repairs to the chancel roof and parapet gutters and high level stonework were completed in 2013 and a medieval sculpture on the east gable was conserved. However, there is still extensive wall stonework decay and the condition of the chancel windows is still a major concern. The parish is keen to undertake repairs and is actively fundraising.
