Church of St Andrew, The Street, Alderton - East Suffolk

Parish church with ruinous west tower. Chancel rebuilt in1862 and the nave restored in 1864. The condition of the drainage and guttering is unclear; however, there is significant evidence of damp within the church interior. The ruinous tower is blocked off from the nave and is overgrown by trees and shrubs. Slow decay continues; no solution yet agreed for either the church or the ruinous tower. Ivy growth partially killed off; some work appears to have been completed. Review required.
