Historical Description

Canwick, a parish in Lincolnshire, 1½ mile SE of the city of Lincoln, which is the post town, and the money order and telegraph office. Acreage, 2118; population, 269. Canwick Hall is the seat of the Sibthorp family. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Lincoln; gross income, £450 with residence, in the gift of the Mercers Company of London. The church is an ancient structure of stone in the Norman, Transitional, and Late Decorated styles, the foundations being laid on a Roman pavement which underlies the whole church, and which presumably belonged to a very early sacred edifice, as Roman tombstones have been found in immediate proximity.
