    Notes:

    Country churches which boast work by Sir Christopher Wren are few and far between, but one such is St. Denys' in Sleaford's busy market place. At the time of the French Revolution Lincoln Cathedral was refurbished and the Cathedral's altar rail was surplus to requirements. The then vicar of Sleaford managed to persuade the church authorities to let St. Denys have the rail. The church's medieval rood screen was expertly restored in 1919 by Sir Ninian Comper in memory of 3 members of the Peake family killed in action in the First World War. In the days before state schooling priests often doubled as teachers and the Lady Chapel was used as a schoolroom in the 19th century. Members of the Carre family are buried in the vault below the Lady Chapel, whose six-light stained glass and traceried window was rated by Nicholas Pevsner as the fourth finest in England.
