Spires & Steeples Arts & Heritage Trail

Nocton cow

The Spires and Steeples trail, from Lincoln Cathedral to St Denys’ Church, Sleaford, brings together the rich history, heritage and local stories of the area.  It has many beautiful artworks, churches, interesting landscapes and picturesque skies. The name refers to the Spires of the churches being the landmarks to which visitors make their way and to the rural sport of Steeple chasing. It is also recognition of the important part they have played in the lives of these communities as well as how they are a reflection of the times, families and cultures that created, altered and rebuilt them.

We have worked with many of the villages on the trail in conjunction with NKDC and other partners to research and explore their history and heritage, and to find creative and inspirational ways to celebrate and record their individual stories. Many of the villages on the route have their own village art trails.

Visit the Spires and Steeples website to find out more about the route, the artworks that can be found along it, and the annual Spires and Steeples challenge.
