Description

A picture of Aubourn

The Anglican parish church is at Aubourn, Lincolnshire dedicated to St. Peter. The present church was built around 1200, on the site of an earlier church built of wood and stone and recorded in the Doomesday Book of 1086. Originally a much larger structure than it is today it included a nave, porch and tower but in 1862 most of the building was demolished, following the building of a new Parish Church on a different site, leaving just the chancel standing which was used as a mortuary for some 50 years. The new Victorian church was clearly less robustly built then the earlier church for by 1968 it had deteriorated to the point that it was thought unsafe for it to continue to be used so the congregation moved back into what remained of the old church which is what you see here.
