Broughton Sulney
St Luke


The stone used is Upper Lias ironstone, presumably from the quarry at Wartnaby, which is within sight of the church. This does not weather very well, and in recent times has been patched with Hornton Stone (Lr Jurassic ironstone from Oxfordshire), Bulwell Stone (Permian dolomite), Lincolnshire Limestone (Mid Jurassic) and probably other bits and pieces that came to hand. Some Lincolnshire Limestone was stained to make it match the ironstone – until the stain faded.
