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 are defective and the timber roof structure is defective. Window tracery is in very poor condition and there is significant cramp damage generally. Rainwater disposal is poor and inadequate. Porch and south aisle walls are rendered; render is failing. A significant body of repairs is planned for 2018/19 with grant aid secured under the Heritage Lottery Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme.
