St Swithins Church

Grade II listed church in Lincoln city centre built in 1870 but originating back to before the 17th century.

St Swithins Church was originally found on the other side of Freeschool Lane, now a green area under tree cover. The original church was nearly destroyed by fire in 1664 and so, records only exist up til that date.

After a rebuild, the original church was taken down in 1884 with the current church building consecrated in 1888. It was built on the old sheep market square and the history of this area remains in the name of the street it is found on: St Swithins Square.
