Church of St John the Baptist, Church Walk, Crowle, Crowle - Wychavon

The original medieval church was demolished and rebuilt in the 1880s to designs by Frederick Preedy in the Decorated style with a tall west tower. The church is constructed from lias limestone rubble with ashlar stone dressings under a plain clay tile roof with decorative ridges. The roof and rainwater goods are in poor condition and minor repairs are required to the stonework. A Heritage Lottery Fund Repair Grant for Places of Worship was offered in February 2013 but not accepted, and therefore no work has taken place.
