Church of All Saints, Church Lane, Middleton Cheney - South Northamptonshire

A large church, C14 with a Perpendicular tower, restored in 1865 by GG Scott. The nave and chancel roofs are leaking; internal water staining is evident, damaging the painted scheme designed by William Morris. Rainwater goods are in poor condition generally. Some downpipes are heavily rusted, and stonework behind leaking hoppers and pipes has markedly deteriorated. The church has been the victim of heritage crime. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship was made in 2017. Development activities are underway, with repairs anticipated to start in spring 2019.
