The separate church of St.Peter has long perished. The church of St. Mary and St. Peter is a building of stone, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles, south porch and a tower of Perpendicular date, with crocketed pinnacles, containing 4 bells: the chancel is Early English, and the porch an excellent example of the Early Decorated style: the paten and the chalice are of plain sixteenth century workmanship: the church was restored in 1862, at a cost of £840, defrayed by subscription: the chancel was rebuilt in 1858, at the expense of the Rev. W. W. Berry, a former rector. There are sittings for 220 persons. The register, including Snitterby dates from the year 1652. The living is a rectory, tithe rent-charge £835, net yearly value £700, including 133 acres of glebe with residence, in the gift of the Crown, and held since 1882 by the Rev. Walter Lancelot Holland B.A. of Corpus Christi college, Cambridge. Here are Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels. The Primitive Methodist chapel, erected in 1859, was enlarged in 1867. There was formerly a Free school, founded and endowed in 1719 by James Tompson of Waddingham, the endowment producing with land £62 yearly, but now handed over to the School Board. The poor's land produces £20 yearly, which is applied to the distribution of fuel to poor widows of the parish. The Marquis of Granby inn, situated in the centre of the village, is an old-established house, replete with every accommodation. Sir Theodore Henry Brinckman bart. D.L. who is lord of the manor, William Skipworth esq. and Philip George Skipwith esq. J.P. of Brick Hill House, Beds. are the principal landowners. The soil is peat, clay and sand; subsoil, limestone. The chief crops are wheat, barley and turnips. The area is 3,720 acres; rateable value, £5,479, the population in 1881 was 715.



BRANDY WHARF, on the Ancholme navigation, is 2½ miles east, and 6 south-east from Kirton Lindsey railway station. A considerable business is done here in coals. Mission services are held here in connection with the parish church. Here is a Wesleyan chapel.
