Church of St Mary Magdalene, The Churchyard, South Molton - North Devon

Large parish church mainly C15, restored in C19. The stonework has started to decay and the roofs are in bad condition. Water ingress to the interior is causing continuing damage. The church was been awarded a maximum Listed Places of Worship Roof Repairs Grant and during 2018 the south aisle, south transept and Lady Chapel roofs have been re-slated. Further funding is still required.
