Church of St Martin, Church Hill, Great Mongeham - Dover

Rural parish church built of flint dating from C12 and later restored by Butterfield in C19. Kentish ragstone window tracery and surrounds and quoins are deteriorating throughout the building. Guttering and hoppers have been looked at. Ground level water disposal is poor and is encouraging plant growth. Possible structural movement at north east corner of north aisle. Slipped tower louvres and vegetative growth on tower and north aisle roof. The congregation plan to make grant applications to fund the works.
