Church of St Mary, Church Road, Market Weston - St Edmundsbury

Largely C14, restored 1846-7 by Cottingham and again in 1888-9. Nave, chancel, south porch and west tower constructed mainly in flint rubble with plain freestone dressings. Hammerbeam nave roof structure, possibly C17. Roof coverings of plain tiles, with parapets. C15 south porch and five-stage tower. Nave roof truss has failed; the tie bars do not appear to have arrested movement. Major roof repairs required. Window in chancel has been supported and blocked to stop the stained glass from blowing out and structural collapse. Architect investigating sources of grant funding with the parish.
