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.
