St Vincent's Church,
Burton by Lincoln

The dedication of the church of Burton by Lincoln is to St. Vincent, deacon of the church in Saragossa, Spain. Vincent was martyred by the Roman authorities in AD301.

The first church in Burton was probably Norman,  however  the only remaining visible evidence of this church is the west doorway at the base of the tower. This is now the main entrance to the church.

The present tower was built in 1678. The remainder of the church was built in 1795.The new church originally comprised of the nave and chancel with a gallery, three decker pulpit and box pews. The vestry on the north side of the church was added as recently as 1925.

The current pews date from 1897, installed in celebration of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and the stained glass windows show items of local interest.

Chairs used by Lord and Lady Monson at the coronations of Edward V11, George V1, and Elizabeth11 are in the gallery.

From the churchyard there are stunning views across the Trent Valley to the Derbyshire Hills.

In the churchyard the dip behind the church marks the line of the original road running from Burton Hill Top past the church and The Rectory to Burton Hall 

The church serves both the village of Burton by Lincoln and the relatively new waterside development at Burton Waters.
