CRANWELL'S PARISH CHURCH
Surrounded by its beautiful, historic and thousand year old churchyard, the ancient Parish Church of Saint Andrew lies in the centre of Cranwell Village. The Grade One listed church is one of the oldest in Lincolnshire. Cranwell was in existence when King Canute invaded through the Humber and became a "war prize" granted to Ulf, one of King Canute's generals. Little remains of the early Saxon church, but the Norse Viking gravestones now displayed in the church stem from that time and there is a beautiful arcade of Norman arches.
