Welcome

Welcome to the website of Crowland Abbey, a place of prayer and worship in the town of Crowland, Lincolnshire. Although we call ourselves an abbey, we are actually the parish church of Crowland. As such, we are a part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Lincoln.

You can find out more about our history and the St Guthlac scroll, as well as taking an interactive virtual tour around the church and abbey ruins. We hope you can visit us and find out more about our church and Crowland Abbey and we look forwarding to welcoming you to our church.

Flower Festival @ Crowland Abbey
Aug 26 @ 10:00 am – Aug 29 @ 4:00 pm

The theme this year is ‘Its a Mystery’

Press Release:
Murder and mystery at Crowland Abbey?
Crowland Abbey’s Annual Bank Holiday Flower Festival this year is based on the theme: “It’s A Mystery”.
Who would have thought that murder, mystery and mayhem would feature in anything to do with this historic old building?  On second thoughts, isn’t there a story that one of the Abbots was killed on the alter steps? So nothing is new then.

Organiser Mrs Val Capes said, “For once we are moving away from our traditional theme of flower festival to one a little more taxing. Will you be able to work out who did what at each of the magnificent displays? Join us to find out.”

Times:                         10 a.m. – 5 p.m., except Sunday 28th, 12 noon – 5 p.m.
Closing Songs of Praise, 6.30 p.m. Monday 29 August

Refreshments:            Light refreshments available 10 a.m. – 4.45 p.m., Sunday open 12 noon

Stalls:                          On various days, craft, flowers, plants and produce

Admission/Parking:     Free
