Langton-by-Spilsby: Inside the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul

The interior of the church still looks largely the same as it did in the 18th Century.

The Stone crucifix of Jesus on the cross in the wall of the porch was found by a former rector in the Rectory garden. It is supposed to be Saxon in origin but Nicholas Pevsner in his book on Lincolnshire dates it in the early 13th century. (extract from the Short Guide found in the Church)

The Font no doubt belonged to the earlier church since it dates from the Decorated period of architecture.

The Altar stands against the east wall and is backed by fine oak panelling and is surrounded on three sides by the communion rail. (extract from the Short Guide found in the Church)

The box pews of carved oak face one another across the nave. On the south side is a three decker pulpit. (extract from the Short Guide found in the Church)
