Church of St George, Goltho Road, Goltho - West Lindsey

This enigmatic small brick church is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. It has a C16 nave and late C17 or early C18 chancel and is surrounded by the buried remains of the settlement it once served. Its simply furnished interior and roof were destroyed by fire on 21 October 2013. The shell of the building has been secured and stabilised pending a decision on repair options.
