Middle Rasen lies 1.5 miles west of the town of Market Rasen. It consists of the merged villages of Middle Rasen Drax (from Drax Priory in Yorkshire which held land in medieval times) and Middle Rasen Tupholme (from Tupholme Abbey in Lincolnshire).

This photograph is of the main street (now the A631) with the Methodist Chapel on the left.

The former Wesleyan Chapel occupies a prominent positon on the corner of Gainsborough Road and Mill Lane.

It was opened in 1911 on the site of a public house, ‘The Brown Cow’.

St. Peter's church in Middle Rasen has a large ironstone tower in the Perpendicular style. The north arcade is dated c1200.

This church's most notable feature is the impressive Norman south doorway–
to Pevsner among the best work of its period in Lincolnshire.
