St. Mary Magdalene, Bailgate is a Grade II listed parish church in Lincoln, England.[1][2][3]


The church stands on the site of a Saxon church, St Mary's, mentioned in the Domesday book.[3] The current building dates from the late thirteenth century and was rebuilt in 1695, following damage by the Parliamentary forces in 1644.[4] In 1882 George Frederick Bodley undertook some remodelling work including a chancel screen and organ case.[1][2][3]



The organ dates from 1864 when it was installed by Lewis. Subsequent restorations and enlargements were undertaken by T.H. Nicholson, Henry Jackson and Cousins. Details of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.[6]
