Church of St John the Evangelist, St John Street, Mansfield - Mansfield

Large urban church in central Mansfield. Most of the church was built as a single design 1855-56 although the north porch is a later addition c1906. Following completion of development work, the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded a grant for repairs to the nave roof through the Grants for Places of Worship scheme in March 2016. The chancel and organ chamber/vestry roof are suffering from nail fatigue and there are several slipped slates and signs of water ingress internally. There are many weathered and open joints in the tower and spire which require urgent attention. Grant funds are being sought.
