Church of St Mary the Virgin, The Street, Manuden - Uttlesford

Church with probable C12 origins. Largely demolished and rebuilt in the1860s. Constructed from flint rubble with stone dressings and a tile roof. Shingled spire showing signs of loss and curling of shingles; north transept (vestry) roof tiles are slipping. The latter are over a C15 roof structure with plastered ceiling and there is mould growth on the western part of the ceiling, which is indicative of a leaking roof. Patch repairs secured. Tiles slipping elsewhere. The parish have set up a subcommittee to advance the re-roofing project, which they hope will be followed by a spire project.
