The incredibly beautiful 15th century Collegiate Church of Holy Trinity in the village of Tattershall in central Lincolnshire.

To my mind it is one of the best examples of English Perpendicular architecture anywhere.

At various times in history, the church has fallen into disrepair but has been restored, even preserving a colony of three species of bats within its structure!

The major advantage of the massive Perpendicular windows is the great amount of light let in.
