Church of St Giles, Church Lane, Gaydon - Stratford-on-Avon

Small ironstone ashlar church with moulded cornices, designed by Squirrill of Leamington and dating from 1852. The church is modest in size but is in poor condition externally due to the friability of the Horton Stone. Some parts of the church appear to be in a poor structural condition, especially on the east gable. There are large cracks in the masonry and one crack on the south west corner is particularly bad. The gutters are also in poor condition.
