St Laurence's Church, Surfleet, Lincolnshire

Surfleet is a small village and civil parish in the South Holland district of the county. It is part of the Lincolnshire fens, on the B1356 road, 3 miles (4.8 km) north from Spalding.

The church is a Grade I listed building and is dedicated to Saint Laurence. It was built during the 13th century and Anglican parish registers exist from the mid 16th century. The leaning tower is a notable aspect of the building and is a fraction out of perpendicular. It seems that soon after the construction of the spire the foundations began to sink into the fenland soil creating the problem. The Font is 15th Century, octagonal, perpendicular with a carving of tracery and flowers and a decorated deeply buttressed stem. The Reredos above the High Altar depicts the Last Supper.

The church was restored at the beginning of the 20th century and now seats more than 250 parishioners. The Millennium Window is of modern design and symbolic in that the palm is the emblem of Saints and Martyrs, the Grid Iron and flames depict the martyrdom of St Laurence.
