Great Hale, St John the Baptist, Brass Plaque
Church Guide compiled by Revd R Rose 1976 states :-
"Two pinnacles and a part of the parapet were dislodged during a severe gale in 1895.
This caused damage to the church roof.
Restoration work was therefore carried out and the church was reopened on Thursday 19th November 1896 by the Bishop of Lincoln"
"A brass plate can be found on the north wall of the Nave which commemorates the re-opening"
