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.

Poppy Wave Coach Trip
Aug 16 @ 9:00 am

A sweeping arch of red poppy heads over Lincoln Castle, presented by 14-18 NOW, that marks the centenary of the First World War.

Wave and Weeping Window, sculptures by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, are brought to audiences at venues across the country as part of the 14-18 NOW programme – Lincoln Castle will host The Wave and will be the only place in England where it can be seen.

The breath-taking sculptures were initially conceived as the key dramatic sculptural elements in the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London in the autumn of 2014.
