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.

Jungle Book @ Crowland Abbey
Dec 8 @ 4:00 pm
Another great play by the Lamphouse Theatre. Suitable for all adventurous audiences aged 6 or over.

Raised by wolves since birth, young man-cub, Mowgli is forced to leave his jungle home
when he is threatened by Shere Khan, a terrifying tiger.
Arriving in a human village, Mowgli is seemingly safe, until he strays from his adopted family and
meets Shere Khan again. Mowgli returns to the protection of the wolf pack, but will his presence
in the jungle again put them all in danger?


Full of live music, comedy, puppetry and energy, this production explores the themes of growing up
and staying true to yourself.


Tickets are £5 per person and can be obtained from the Abbey itself, Bridge Hardware in Crowland
