St Andrew's Church, Rippingale, Lincolnshire

St Andrew's Parish Church, Rippingale, is open to visitors from Easter until the Autumn and the incumbent is the Revd Linda Pugh.

There was a stone church on the site during the Domesday Survey of 1086, but all traces of it have disappeared.

Reportedly founded in 1250, the building itself was certainly in place by the late 14th century and was restored in the mid 19th century and is now Grade I listed and seats 300 parishioners.

In the church yard was located a weeping ash, Fraxinus excelsior 'Pendula' – a tree rare for Britain. It survived for a century until 2002 and having died was felled.

Rippingale is part of the Ringstone in Aveland group of parishes, in the Aveland Deanery of the Diocese of Lincoln.

The village is a civil parish in the South Kesteven district of the county and is situated on the A15 road, about 5 miles (8 km) north from Bourne.
