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.

Siege of Crowland 1643

Once again Friends of Crowland Abbey will be re-enacting the Siege of Crowland Abbey 1643 in conjunction with the Sealed Knot Cittie of London Brigade. Bigger and better more cannon, more pikes, more muskets we even have cavalry this time.

The event kicks off at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday 14th September around the Trinity Bridge followed by a rabble raising march to the Abbey field.

7.15 pm sees a torch lit parade through the town to the field followed by a fire pike assault with a huge firework finale.

The Houndogs perform in the beer tent at 8.30pm to round off a full programme.

Sunday is a quieter day ending with Colonel Cromwell arriving to close the event at 4.30pm.

Wrist Bands will be available from the Abbey Church £5 for the weekend £10 admission to the “Houndogs” under 16s free.

Catering is provided by “Poppies” tea room “The Little Red Bus” fish and chips and a barbeque by our local butcher.

The “Stagger Inn” bar will be open both days.

A large living history camp and 17th Century market will give a flavour of what life was like during the Civil War.

So pick your side Roundhead or Cavalier dress up join in and have some fun.
