Church of St Andrew, Church Lane, Melksham - Wiltshire (UA)

Parish Church 1876 by Charles Adye. Ashlar, decorative tiled roof with coped verges, cross finials and cresting. Nave and chancel with south door and north vestry. Early English style. The clay tiled roofs and rainwater goods to the nave and chancel are in poor condition. In 2017, a scheme was drawn up to redevelop the modern extension to provide community use as part of the church. Funding sources for this will be explored.
