St Deny's Church, Sleaford, Lincolnshire

St Denys' is open from 09.00 until dusk for anybody who wishes just to come and spend some time in reflection.

A Grade I listed building, bordered by local shops and a small marketplace, it is reknown for having one of the oldest stone broach spires in England and an altar rail designed by Sir Christopher Wren.

Built in the early 13th century, the building was added to during the 15th, 18th and 19th centuries. Over its lifetime the church has been used as a barracks (during the English Civil War) and as a school room (during the 19th century).

The interior features quite breath taking stained glass windows and members of the Carre family (a notable local family) are buried in the church. George Carre, the first Carre to inhabit the town, was entombed in the nave of the church in 1521, but was later moved and laid in the floor of the chancel.
