Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-

"The church of SS. Peter and Paul is an ancient building of the Earlier English, Late Decorated and Perpendicular periods, consisting of chancel, nave of five bays, aisles, south porch and a western tower containing a clock and 3 bells :

there are richly canopied sedilia, the ogee arches of which are deeply moulded and crocketed in a free and bold style ; the chancel retains also a piscina and locker, and there are remains of a rood screen of Perpendicular date, and a late Norman font with an arcading of interlaced semicircular arches:

the tower is finished abruptly and has no parapet; its lower stages are Early English:

the church was restored and reseated in 1873, at a cost of £1,460, when the roof of the chancel and nave were raised to the original pitch, and a new east window inserted:

there are 350 sittings"

White's Directory of Lincolnshire 1856 states :-

"The Church (St. Peter and St. Paul) is a large and handsome structure, with some fine architecture, of the age of Edward III.

It consists of a nave, with aisles, a chancel, and a tower, in which are three bells.

Nearly the whole of the old open seats remain, and they are richly carved, scarcely two of them alike.

The font is Anglo-Norman, ornamented with pillars and interlaced semicircular arches"
