St Mary's Church, Frampton, Lincolnshire

Frampton is a pleasant village in the county, situated just to the south of the town of Boston. The village lies on the edge of one of the great marine creek levees formed during the Bronze Age.

The medieval church of Saint Mary, with its imposing limestone brickwork and magnificent tower, dates from the 12th century and is a Grade I listed building which was restored in the late 18th and late 19th centuries.

A church and a priest are mentioned in the Doomsday records of 1086AD and it is believed a structure of wood stood before the Normans tore it down and replaced it with a stone building. Now, only the font bowl and hidden pillars that support the nave are all that remain from that period in history.
