Haugham Church. (Part 1 of 2)

All Saints Church, at Haugham is in Lincolnshire.  It's a very small church standing in it's own grounds some way from the village of Haugham which is pronounced locally as "Howam".  The church is approached only by a grass path & is a 1/3rd replica of the nearby Louth church of St. James and can be seen from the A16 trunk road when approaching Louth from the south.  This has mislead quite a few travelers into thinking they are almost at Louth!
All Saints Church is an "abandoned church" in the care of the The Churches ConservationTrust.

There is a safety exclusion zone in one area due to dangerous overhanging broken tree branches.

There are some fine features.

The graveyard is being reclaimed in parts by nature,
