Sometime prior to the year 1173, a small island in the Ancholme, called Ruckholme, was given to St. Gilbert and the canons of Sempringham. There they founded Newstede Priory, dedicated to the Holy Trinity. It is found on more modern maps with the name Newstead Farm.
The Anglican parish church was dedicated to All Saints.
The church is of Norman 12th century origin.
The church was restored in 1913.
The church is a Grade I listed building with English Heritage.
