Church of St Nicholas, Church Lane, East Kirkby - East Lindsey

Parish church with C13, C14, C16, extensively restored C19 and 1904-6. The tower is unusually located to the south, and contains the entrance porch. The west wall heavily buttressed. The site has been subject to heritage crime. Rainwater goods need repairing, and the north side of the church needs vegetation management in order to allow maintenance access. Greensand stonework walling is heavily eroded, and suffers from previous cement pointing internally and externally.
