Church of St Mary, Waterhouses, Staffordshire Moorlands - Staffordshire Moorlands

This church was built in 1839 and has a nave with a west end bellcote, a south porch and a short chancel with a north vestry. It has grey limestone rubble walls with buff gritstone dressings and the roof is covered with blue plain clay tiles. The nave roof covering is near the end of its life and needs to be stripped and re-laid. Timber repairs to the roof and ceiling structures are also likely to be required. Grants have been secured from the National Churches Trust and the Staffordshire Historic Churches & Chapels Trust and re-roofing works are due to be completed before the end of 2018 .
