St. Botolph’s , Skidbrooke

 

The isolated church of St. Botolph in Skidbrooke , Lincolnshire. The Church dates from the 13th century and had various additions and alterations throughout its history. It was made redundant in 1974. it is now under the care of the Churches conservation trust, who do their best against a rising tide of vandals, satanists and ghost hunters.
Centuries of Marriages , Baptisms and Funerals have undoubtably left their mark, permeating the fabric of the place with tears of joy and sorrow, rejoicing in the living and lamenting the dead.
Do not come here looking for Ghosts, Ghouls and Vampires, but visit on a summer afternoon and marvel at the medieval craftsmanship, and enjoy its tranquil beauty.
