Keddington Grade II listed Ticklepenny Lock on Louth Canal

Keddington Grade II listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Margaret.[2] The church was restored in 1871-73. It has a 15th-century wooden eagle lectern, and a south door with transom.[3] The eagle lectern is one of only six in England of its kind.[4]

Other Grade II listed buildings include the remains of two locks on the disused Louth Canal, four farm houses, a cottage, and the remains of Louth Abbey.[5] A Cistercian house, Louth Abbey was founded in 1139, and was dissolved at suppression in 1536. Still visible are earthworks and ruined chancel walls.[6]
