Church dedication:

All Saints' Church, Winterton. Within the Diocese of Lincoln.

Address:

Churchside, Winterton, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire

Please note that Churchside is a narrow one-way street. There is no parking but cars can drop passengers at the main church entrance if they enter Churchside from Queen Street. Cars are not able to reach the Church directly from Market Street due to the one-way system.

Opening hours:

Every Wednesday from 2-4pm we are open especially for visitors. Welcome staff are on hand to answer any questions.

The church is open frequently for church services and concerts and other social activities in our programme. For details see Calendar - default view and What's On

Please note at all other times that, unfortunately, our church currently has to be kept locked. We plan in the future to keep it open during daylight hours.

Parking:

There is no dedicated parking space for our church. Please note that Churchside is a narrow, one-way street and parking is not possible. Parking is also very limited in Queen Street.

The church does have the kind agreement of the landlords for our visitors to use the car park at the George Hogg, which is very close to the church, in Market Street [postcode DN15 9PT]. If you do use this car park please take the opportunity to call in for a drink or meal. The George Hogg is privately owned and is open most days from 9am but not Mondays and Tuesdays when it opens later and you may find the gates to the car park closed. It serves coffee, drinks and food all day. It is easiest to approach the George Hogg car park from High Street towards Market Street.

There are a few parking spaces on Market Street and many more along the High Street but some of these are time-limited. Roadside parking is possible along West Street. There is a footpath across the churchyard from West Street opposite the Old School Hall.

Toilet:

There is a toilet inside the church. Public conveniences are located at the lower end of Queen Street.

Accessibility issues:

All Saints is a medieval building. Wheelchair access is possible via the South Porch which faces Churchside. There is a ramp inside to the lower floor level. However, inside the church the floors are at different levels and access is limited.

Wheelchair access is not possible to the toilet in the church.

There are three entrances to the churchyard with stone paving leading to the South Porch. The main gateway off Churchside and the north west gate off West Street both have small steps/ramps. The gate in the south east corner at the Churchside/Queen Street junction has no step.
