Robert Hayton died in 1424. He is depicted in rather out of date armour for the time.
All Saints' church, Theddlethorpe

Grade I listed

The church was made redundant in 1971 and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust. Extensive repairs and renewals have been carried out in recent years.

The church dates from the 12th century onwards, with some Norman work on the north side. The rest of the church dates from around 1380 to 1400.
There is extensive brick patching from the 17th century. The church was restored the in 1866, the chancel and tower somewhat later.
It consists of a western tower, nave with north and south aisles and clerestory, chancel, and south porch.
Outside, the church is battlemented with pinnacles and gargoyles, with much evidence of the brick patching.
Inside, the nave has north and south arcades of five bays with octagonal piers. The stone used is both dark and pale coloured which gives a pleasing chequered effect.
The nave roof was restored in the 19th century.
Both aisles have carved wooden parclose screens from around 1535 with faces and a coat of arms of the Angevine family. The Rood screen has remains of coloured paint on it.

At the east end of the north aisle there is a mediaeval altar stone, however there is a large crack running through the floor and wall. The south Chapel has an ornate carved stone reredos. There is also a brass to Robert Hayton, died 1424, and a matrix for another brass, the figures are missing.
The chancel has a marble altar table, sedilia and piscina. There is also a monument to Charles Bertie, died 1727.

The octagonal font dates from the 15th century.
