Parish Church of St John the Baptist, Church Lane, Sibson-cum-Stibbington - Huntingdonshire

Nave and chancel early to mid C12; extended by Teulon in 1848-49 at which time the north and south aisles were added along with the vestry, organ chamber, south porch and timber bellcote. West tower demolished. The church is suffering from excess rising and falling dampness; valley gutters and cast iron rainwater goods leaking. Salt migration noted on exterior stonework. Some solid floors with fitted carpets concealing salt migration and harbouring dampness. Complex set of conditions which require interventions to return the building to a stable condition. Historic England advising.
