Other Information

  • St Wulfram's in Grantham was the first English medieval church to have a truly large spire, and originally the tallest of those. Construction on raising the spire ran from about 1280 to 1300 and caused a local construction race to build similarly lofty churches with Louth, Newark-on-Trent and Boston all also reaching for new heights following its erection.
  • St Wulfram's Church is dedicated to the obscure French saint of the same name who has a mere two churches in England related to him. St Wulfram supposedly helps protect against the dangers of the sea, an odd choice for a town like Grantham that is many miles from the coast. As such, the origins of the links between the church and the saint have been lost in the mists of time.
