Parish Church of St Denys, Church Road, Church End, Colmworth - Bedford (UA)

Early C15 with window tracery re-worked in C19. Chancel of cobblestone but coursed freestone everywhere else. Chancel, north vestry, nave, south porch and west tower with broach spire which dominates the surrounding countryside. Nave roof covering has failed in spite of repeated patching and requires urgent replacement to protect late medieval carvings incorporated into roof beneath and medieval walls. Parapets slender and loose especially on north and east elevations but maybe elsewhere. Vestry roof leaks. Excessively damp internally.
