Angels from the Realms of Grimoldby
April to October 2024
A major exhibition of national importance that features two of the newly restored fifteenth-century oak-carved roof angels from St Edith’s Church, Grimoldby.
Only a few medieval roof angels survive in Lincolnshire; most were destroyed in the sixteenth century during the Reformation. The Grimoldby angels are unusual in being depicted as the dragon-fighting angels of Revelation 12:7-9.
This is a rare opportunity to see two of the nine Grimoldby angels up close before they are returned to their homes high in the nave of St Edith’s Church.
The exhibition is designed in consultation with the University of Lincoln Conservation Department and is supported by St Edith’s Grimoldby Parochial Church Council.
