Church of St Mary, Buckland - Vale of White Horse

Cruciform plan with central tower. Early C12 nave, Early English (c.1240) transepts, tower and chancel; church rebuilt with late C18 windows. Coursed limestone rubble, limestone ashlar walling; stone slate roofs, except to nave and chancel; limestone ashlar flue. The limestone stone slate roofs to the north and south transepts are in urgent need of repair as water ingress has caused internal ceiling finishes becoming detached in areas. The National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme was used to repair the nave roof. The condition of the Chancel roof remains of concern.
