Church of St Mary the Virgin, Bozenham Mill Lane, Grafton Regis - South Northamptonshire

Church of late C12 origins. The nave and chancel is C13 and the tower is C15. The church was repaired in 1840 and then restored in 1889. Inside the church are important early C15 monuments. The tower roof covering has failed due to age, allowing water ingress into the tower. The roof timbers are decayed, parapet gutters leak and access to the tower roof is dangerous. The south porch roof also leaks and timbers are decaying. The interior is damp due to poor rainwater dispersal and the monuments are suffering. A National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant for Places of Worship grant has been awarded.
