All Saints, Moulton, is described as ‘the Queen of the Fens’ in Julian Flannery’s new book, Fifty English Steeples.

He describes the church steeple as “the outstanding steeple of the late fourteenth century in Lincolnshire”.

The author’s only criticism of the “brilliant” spire is “it is slightly too small for the tower on which it sits”.

There is currently no vicar at Moulton, but Margaret Horn, who has been associated with the church for 25 years – she is currently verger, but has served as churchwarden, keeps the church archives and is also the choir leader – agrees it’s “rather a nice steeple”.

The congregation is also proud of its recently refurbished six bells that sound special. Margaret says they know that because they have a lot of visiting bell ringers.
