Loughton Parish Church, Wheathill - Shropshire (UA)

This church was built in 1622 at the expense of Bonham Norton of Church Stretton to replace a C13 chapel. Constructed in rubble stone with steeply pitched roofs covered by plain clay tiles, it consists of a nave with a west bell-cote and a lower chancel. It was subsequently restored in 1904 when the south porch and north vestry were added. This was possibly the last occasion when all roofs were last re-laid and accounts for their poor condition. Rainwater goods are also failing and a new modified surface water drainage system is required.
