Church of St Mary, Gilmorton Road, Ashby Magna - Harborough

Church of late C13 but restored and provided with a new chancel in 1861. The church comprises a four-stage embattled west tower, nave with north aisle and 'blind' clerestory and chancel with north vestry. Walls are of random granite rubble with field pebble 'galletting' (small stones pushed into mortar to strengthen it) and limestone dressings. The stonework to the tower is in need of repair and the rainwater goods are in a poor condition with the downpipes displaced on the south side of the nave. Grant funding is being sought. The church has been subject to heritage crime.
