About Carlton-le-Moorland

Lovely Lincolnshire village with a history stretching back to the Doomsday Book and possibly beyond. One of its best loved features of the village is St.Mary's Church which is believed to date from between the 12th and 13th centuries. Certainly the chancel is 13th century and the font, the oldest of the church possessions is 12th century. But as a church and priest were mentioned in Doomsday, there are some who think the church could be even older. However, the church is not without alteration, it has been enhanced and added to throughout the various centuries, work includes the handsome 14th century tower, stained glass of the late 19th century fitted into the Elizabethan-style windows, there is also the remains of an old rood screen thought to be from the 15th century. Interestingly, the bench ends still show the holes that were used to hold candles in the days before electricity.

St. Mary's stands in a peaceful churchyard where visitors can see many ancient graves and tombs. The churchyard is entered through a magnificent Lych-Gate built in 1924 to honour the villagers whose lives were lost during WWI.

At the centre of the village is a delightful inn of the 16th century, this is full of charm and atmosphere, retaining its old oak beams and many other original features.

The village has pleasant cottages and some imposing houses from Victorian times. However, its only amenity is a small village shop, but the larger nearby village of Bassingham offers better shopping facilities, two pubs, playing fields, church and a chapel.

Carlton-le-Moorland stands in the spacious open countryside bordering the River Brant, it offers leafy lanes for quiet walks and lovely riverside strolls. It is perfectly placed for reaching the fine City of Lincoln and for Newark-upon-Trent.
