History and Architecture

Built of greenstone in the early English style, St Margaret's is partly 13th century with traces of Norman and the external features mainly Victorian. The Western tower, restored in 1912, is embattled with four pinnacles and houses a mediaeval bell. There are two original gargoyles and two of later origin.
The inside arcades are 13th century and both are of four bays with low double chamfered arches. The octagonal font was originally square and is a link with Norman times.
The fine pulpit, Masonic in design, was installed in 1646. A carved reredos was dedicated in 1902 and the stained glass windows of St. Margaret and St. Hugh in 1902.
The earliest entry recorded in the Parish Register comes from 1708.

Sunday Services
Each month we have a Morning Prayer at 10.00am (first Sunday), Holy Communion at 10.00am (third Sunday) and occasional family service, with additional services over the Christian festivals.

We are currently raising funds to repair the church roof - we need to find £100,000!  We usually hold fundraising events three or four times a year.  The include musical events, such as 'Last Night of the Proms' which featured the band of Lincolnshire Search and Rescue and disco evenings: 'Dazzling 80s', 'Oh What a Night 50s/60s/70s' and and our most recent, 'Best of British'.  We also hold Church Open Days so that visitors can have a leisurely look around our beautiful church, and stay for quiet time as well as home-made cakes and crafts.  Look out for future events on the website!

On 2 July 2017, St Margaret's Church was immortalised in cake - well, for a few hours at least - at the SO Festival in Skegness.  'Cake Fest' was part of this year's festival and bakers from all over Northeast Lincolnshire volunteered to bake landmarks, churches and places of interest around the region, all to be placed on a edible map on the last day of the SO Festival.  Louise and Dave Mills volunteered to 'bake Bucknall':
