Church of St Mary the Virgin, Main Street, Shackerstone - Hinckley and Bosworth

Parish church dating from C16; restored and chancel rebuilt in 1884. Roof coverings and the timber roof structure were defective, window tracery was in very poor condition and there was significant cramp damage generally. Rainwater disposal was also poor and inadequate. Porch and south aisle walls are rendered and render was failing. A significant body of repairs will be completed by the close of 2019 with grant aid secured under the National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme.
