Church of St Mary, Abbey Dore, Abbey Dore - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Large parish church created in c1634 from the derelict Abbey church of the dissolved Cistercian Dore Abbey. The c1220 transepts crossing and chancel remain with a C17 tower inserted on the south east angle of the crossing. There are repair issues with the roof and drainage from this tower as well as the sandstone ashlar walling. The sandstone slates of all the main roofs have been renewed except the north transept chapel roof which still has the original slates. These have failed and are leaking, needing urgent re-slating.
