Church of All Saints, Newark Road, Hawton - Newark and Sherwood

Church, C13, with C14 and C15 additions. Restored in 1880 by CH Fowler, with a further restoration in the 1960s. The chancel contains the C14 Easter Sepulchre, described by Pevsner as "one of the most exciting pieces of architecture in the country". Though in fair order generally, the tower is considered unsafe. Urgent repairs are needed to the bell supports, bell frame, flooring and stonework. High level stonework to the tower needs repairing. Belfry louvres are broken and several have fallen. Heritage Lottery Fund grant has been secured for the first phase of work to the bell frame.
