Attractions in North Lincolnshire

Here are the most interesting attractions in North Lincolnshire.

Epworth was the birthplace of John Wesley, an early founder of the Methodist Church. The Methodist Church now owns the rectory where John Wesley lived as a child and it is a museum called, of course, The Old Rectory Museum. Outside of the house is the Wesley Physic Garden. In 1747 Wesley wrote a book, "The Primitive Physic" in which he details cures for common ailments using plants and herbs. In the garden you can see the growing plants he recommended in the book. The museum is located at 1 Rectory Street, Epworth, North Lincolnshire.

John Wesley's father, Samuel Wesley, was Rector at the Church of St. Andrew in Epworth from 1695 to 1735. It was here that John Wesley was baptized and his father's tomb is here near the southeast door. The church dates from about 1189. Below are two pictures of St. Andrew Church. The second is the interior of the church.

Crowle is also worth a visit to see the Church of St. Oswald. The church has elements of both Anglo Saxon and Norman architecture. Of particular interest is what is known as the Crowle Stone. This is a carved stone which was part of an ancient stone cross believed to be from about 650 AD. (Picture of interior below.)
