St. Wilfrid's, Honington, Lincolnshire

Located on a ridge the Anglican Parish Church at Honington, dedicated to St. Wilfrid * and with recorded references dating back to the eleventh century, is a landmark that can be seen from all directions when approaching the village. Built of local limestone and ironstone the oldest part of the church is the Nave which with large round Norman arches. The tower and unusually long chancel date from the thirteenth century. Over the years many other significant changes were made as is evident in the Nave where signs of older arches can be seen in the stonework. The wooden roof of the Nave, which is five hundred years old, is supported by six angel corbels. High clerestory windows were added at a later date to give more light and the north aisle added to provide additional seating as the village population grew. A chapel at the eastern end of the aisle was added by the Hussey family to commemorate deceased family members. *Some sources give the Saint's name as Wilford or Wifred although it is believed the Church was named after Saint Wilfrid (634-709AD), a Benedictine Monk and Bishop of York.
