This is the Benefice where St Gilbert, the founder of the only purely English religious Order, was born in 1083 in the village of Sempringham.

Other interesting facts about our Benefice include the fact that Aslackby was a centre for the Knights Templars.

Michael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury (1961-1974) was baptised at Horbling.

Two Pugin monuments can be seen in Horbling Church.
