Kelly's Directory 1930 reports :-

"The church of St. Nicholas, erected on the site of an older structure in 1780, at the meagre cost of £219, was rebuilt in 1866-7 at a cost of £1,000, and is now a building of stone and brick, in the Early Decorated style, from plans by Mr. James Fowler, architect, of Louth, consisting of apsidal chancel, nave, south porch and an embattled western tower with four pinnacles, completed in 1894 at a cost of £220, and containing one bell and a clock with two dials placed in April, 1899, at a cost of nearly £70, in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria:

the reredos is of Caen stone and alabaster, and the font is supported on eight shafts of serpentine marble:

the lectern, communion table and other furniture were presented to the church:

the silver chalice and paten date from 1569:

the stained east window was placed by the rector as a memorial to his wife:

the interior was entirely redecorated at a cost of £150 in 1920; there are sittings for 180 persons.

The separate register of this parish dates only from the year 1858; the earlier registers are included in those of Waddingham.

The living is a rectory, annexed to that of Waddingham, joint net yearly value £963, with residence, in the gift of the Crown, and held since 1928 by the Rev. Robert Woods Wortley B.A. of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, hon. C.F. who resides at Waddingham"
