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.
Ancient Monument turns back the clock:
Crowland Abbey Craft and Food Fair
including South Lincolnshire Young Enterprise Group Trade Fair
Go Green, and save on fuel and the environment by doing your Christmas Shopping locally. Crowland
Abbey is again turning the clock back to mediaeval times with its” St Nicholas Craft and Food Fair” in
December. Plans to recreate a step back in time have been ongoing since last year in a bid to raise
funds for the running and restoration of the this ancient monument, and what could be more appropriate
than having the fair on St Nicholas Day, and the opportunity to see the newly opened visitor centre.
Organiser, Rosemary Briston, said “Again it will be wonderful to see the Abbey used as a market place,
as it once was. Stalls include locally produced meat, cakes, preserves and honey from within a few
miles of the Abbey, Christmas decorations, knitted baby and adult clothing, handmade cards, leather
goods, jewellery and gifts.
All accompanied by live seasonal music. Light refreshments including homemade soup and mulled
wine with mince pies will be available.
