Church of St Mary, Sheviock - Cornwall (UA)

Large parish church in the centre of a small village. Twin aisle plan with a transept and a slender west tower. This tower has a thin spire which has severe wet ingress problems through open joints and eroded stonework. This damp has caused decay in the timber floors of the tower below. There is also fallen plaster from the nave ceiling.
