Church of St John the Baptist, Church Lane, Chilcompton - Mendip

Parish church dating from the C15 much rebuilt in the C19. The nave north parapet has been secured, and there was a significant problem in the eastward parts of the building which had severe frost damage to limestone copings and string courses and further problems with poor walling stone and pointing. A Listed Places of Worship Roof Repairs Grant awarded in 2015 enabled most work to be completed. Some very significant boundary wall repairs are still required.
