Church of St Lucia, Upton Magna - Shropshire (UA)

This C12 church has a chancel and nave with a west tower and a south porch. Some original masonry survives in the chancel but the church was substantially rebuilt and enriched by the architect GE Street between 1860-1. The condition of the plaster infill ceiling panels to the nave and north aisle roofs is fragile and hazardous to those who use the church. There is water ingress at the nave roof abutment to the tower and defective drainage is responsible for damp walls at low level. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship was awarded in 2017 and work is due to start in spring 2019.
