Church of St Mary, Church Lane, Greetham - Rutland (UA)

Church, mainly C13-C15 work but with some early C11 remains. The church was restored in 1897 by JA Cossins. The nave roof covering is over 100 years old and has been extensively patch repaired, but leaks persist. Some of the gutters are holding water and there is timber decay to the roof structure internally. The nave roof and associated timberwork requires repair and renewal. The church applied unsuccessfully to the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund in 2016. The PCC have successfully fundraised and a repair scheme is due to commence in autumn 2020.
