Scartho St Giles


The Parish

The parish of Scartho lies in the extreme northeast of Lincolnshire not too far from its North Sea coast. Scartho, formerly a small village, lies about 2 miles south of the port of Grimsby and, indeed, has largely become a suburb of that port as it has grown during the 20th century. Scartho sits on the A1243 road which heads southwards from Grimsby to join the A16 heading for Louth. There was previously not much to Scartho, most of the properties there now having been built in the last 50 years or so. At the time of this transcript Scartho was a small agricultural settlement. Scartho is drained eastwards by feeders of the Buck Beck which reaches the nearby North Sea just south of the seaside resort of Cleethorpes. Scartho is sited at just 15 metres above the sea and sits on a largely flat plain at or more or less at that height. Lincolnshire parishes are traditionally small and Scartho was no exception, it covered just under 1,400 acres and supported a population of just under 200 parishioners. In Domesday times Scartho was held by Bishop Odo of Bayeux and could boast 16 ploughs, substantial meadows & woodlands and 2 mills.

The Church

St Giles' church is almost surrounded by 20th century development but it, with its substantial churchyard, sits in an enclave of land giving a distinctly rural feel. St Giles is an ancient structure much modified over the centuries. Pevsner dates the tower to the pre-Conquest period and cites an archway in the nave as also Saxon. Much else dates from the Early English Gothic style of the early 13th century. There was much change during the mid 19th century when the eastern wall was largely rebuilt & during the 20th century St Giles was expanded to cope with its new role as a suburban church by having a whole new northern side & chancel. The church is approached from Church Lane by a long shaded driveway, the churchyard has many trees and these do tend to restrict the angles available for photographic views.
