Church of St Mary Magdalene, Leintwardine - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Large complex church in the small town of Leintwardine. It consists of several phases of medieval work and restorations in the late C19 and early C20. Repairs were carried out in 2004 but further work was required to roofs over the north aisle, and chapel, and to rainwater goods. A Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England Repair Grant for Places of Worship for work to address these was completed in 2014. However problems remain with the north chapel roof and further problems have now emerged of falling mortar from the tower.
