To visit, follow the A15 to Lincoln, then turn onto the A57. The A57 at this point is St Mary's Street. The church is located at its junction with High Street. There is no parking at the churchyard, but there are lots of car parks in the area. Alternatively, follow the A46 to Lincoln. Then join the A57 and follow it towards Lincoln railway station. This will lead you to the High Street junction.
The left-hand side of this churchyard is now part of the street. The gravestones have been laid flat and made part of the walkway. To the front and left there is a path, which contains gravestones. There is also a very small grass area that has more gravestones. Some have been laid flat. The few standing stones are set along the wall.
During 1854 and 1855 the Lincoln Burial Board was formed for nine Lincoln parishes, including Saint Mary le Wigford. In 1856 the board opened Canwick Road cemetery. This resulted in the closure of Saint Mary le Wigford churchyard.
This list contains all visible gravestones, which I recorded on 28 May 2008.
