St Buryan Church, St. Buryan - Cornwall (UA)

A large three-aisled church with a tall tower that is a famous maritime landmark. The valley gutters were leaking, causing active decay to the wall heads above the internal arcades. A Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England Repair Grant for Places of Worship was given to renew the valley gutters and repair the inner slate roof slopes, and that repair work was undertaken in 2012. The tower roof remains in poor condition.
