Let’s Celebrate Lincolnshire Churches – Scothern

Every May the West Lindsey region of northern Lincolnshire opens the doors of its churches to visitors for two weekends – the West Lindsey Churches Festival.

Church of St. Germain, Scothern.

Pictured above is Scothern church, quite small but beautiful, the whole churchyard raised a few feet above the surrounding area of the village.

Once inside we had the usual very warm welcome, with residents sharing information about the church, the village, their lives in general. And of course we had to partake in the coffee and cake on offer.

What made Scothern a little unusual was the organ and piano recitals going on over the weekend.

Another interesting feature was the exhibition of childhood toys.

All this and music too?

And perhaps the greatest feature of the church is the wonderful 16th century Dutch panel painting called ‘The Adoration of the Magi’.
