Markby Church, Lincolnshire

An external shot of the Thatched Church of St. Peter, Markby, built from the ruins of Markby Priory. Apparently it is the only thatched church in Lincolnshire. This photograph was probably shot in approximately 1911 (the state of the roof matches the image found on this page).
