Parish Church of St Denys, Main Street, Aswarby and Swarby - North Kesteven

Church of C12 origins with later C14 and C15 work. Restored in 1850 by Edward Blore. The stability of the masonry spire is of concern and the top courses were taken down for safety reasons in 2015. There are numerous open joints which have allowed water to penetrate inside. Roof coverings to the nave and chancel are in need of repair and numerous rainwater goods are defective. There is established vegetation growth in some gutters and hoppers. The church has been offered a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship grant. Works are on site and due to complete in 2018.
