Church of St Mary Magdalen, Church Road, Wiggenhall St. Mary Magdalen - King's Lynn and West Norfolk

C13 west tower of carrstone and limestone ashlar; early C14 belfry. Nave and aisles early C15; Chancel with C15 alterations. Predominantly brick with some rubble stone and lead roofs. Tower walls deteriorating largely due to previous cementitious pointing and render repairs causing mortar to fall away leaving deeply recessed and eroded joints or pockets of eroded stonework that undercut the adjacent masonry particularly on the south side of the silence chamber and on the adjacent buttress. Similar erosion elsewhere. Extensive cracking. Beetle attack. Some windows in need of repair.
