Church of St Edith, Tinkle Street, Grimoldby - East Lindsey

A substantial church of Spilsby greensand with much eroded stone. Its C16 roof structure still survives, but this ancient timberwork has suffered from extensive dampness due to defective roof coverings and very bad high level rainwater disposal arrangements. Recently re-roofed with National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant for Places of Worship funding. Structural movement to the tower and south aisle and the condition of stonework to the tower gives cause for concern. The church has been a victim of heritage crime.
