Generally well maintained but building fabric damaged and on-going water ingress; several roofs require repair. Rainwater goods require attention. Possible isolated structural issues to chancel and south aisle requires inspection and monitoring. The building has been subject to heritage crime. Extremely limited funds available to undertake repairs. Diocese assisting PCC to explore funding options.
