Can you help?
Now and again an object will be offered to the Society, or discovered hidden away amongst the many wonderous things in the museum, which cannot readily be identified. This may be the function of the item, its history or origins. We may include a description or photograph of any such objects on this page and would ask for your own opinion - whether just a guess or more reasoned or researched advice about it. Just use the Contact Us tab to let us know your views. Alternatively, of course, you could arrange a visit to the museum to see the object at first hand!
One of our members, in collating our photographic collection, came upon several images of the exterior of churches or chapels believed to be in the South Lincolnshire area. No further information was known about them and we were therefore seeking help with their identification. Thank you so much for all your comments and we now believe that we have identified the first 6 and have noted our findings below. There is still one to be identified, number 7, so take a look to see if you have any ideas or information.
No. 1 - Weston Hills (aka Weston St. John's)
St. John the Evangelist, taken between 1889 and 1896
No. 2 - St. Margarget's, Quadring
No. 3 - St. Stephen's, Etton near Market Deeping
No. 4 - St. Swithins, Bicker
No. 5 - St. Mary's, Weston Village, before thatched lychgate built post-WW1
No. 6 - St. Lawrence, Bardney, from old school garden now built upon
No. 7 - still to be identified
