Church of St Peter, Coreley - Shropshire (UA)

This church has a C13 unbuttressed west tower with a later shingled broach spire. Both the nave and lower chancel were rebuilt in C18 in brickwork on the former medieval footprint. Roofs are steeply pitched with plain clay tiles which appear to be almost at the end of their life, along with most of the rainwater goods. Ineffective drainage and/or roof leaks are responsible for the deteriorating condition of the vestry plasterwork.
