Parish History

Lincoln St Peter at Arches  was built in 1724 by Lincoln Council for use in the council's civic services, and stood next to the Guildhall. The organ was built in the 19th century by Father Willis, who also built Lincoln Cathedral's present organ.

The church was demolished in the 20th century as part of urban redevelopment.

The present church of St Giles now houses much of the parish church contents including 8 bells from 1728 and the organ and was built in 1936 by W.G.Watkins.

Lincoln St. Peter at Arches lies within the boundary of Lincoln the Virgin Mary Cathedral (Ancient Parish). This Parish was functioning by at least the year 1561. [1]
