Goltho was an Ancient Parish and Bullington, Lincolnshire was formed as a chapelry within the parish.
The nave was built about 1530 adjacent to now demolished Goltho Hall under the patronage of the owners. It underwent further addition about 1600 and restoration in subsequent centuries.
By the twentieth century it had become a small mortuary chapel due to its isolation and was declared redundant by the dioces of Lincoln in November 1976.
