Church of All Saints, Church Lane, Asfordby - Melton

A large rural parish church with fabric dating from the C14 with C15 and C19 work. Restored by GG Scott in 1866-67 (chancel) and again in 1868-9 (main body of the church). The church has also been the subject of heritage crime. The roof coverings require renewal and repair and water ingress has been a long-term problem as evidenced by timber decay. Some repairs have been carried out but further work is required. The rainwater dispersal system is not functioning as efficiently as it should and there are leaking downpipes and gutters. Fundraising to address fabric repairs continues.
