Church of St Stephen, Market Square, Kirkby Stephen - Eden

Church of 1230 with later additions and alterations. C16 west tower, aisled seven bay nave of C13, transept to the north and chancel. Generally appears in good condition, but water dripping from the roof just inside the main south west door suggests that the nave roof, not visible because of the parapet, is in poor condition, placing the church at risk.
