Roman Catholic Church of St Peter Paul and Elizabeth, Coughton - Stratford-on-Avon

In 1851-3 the Throckmorton family built a substantial church and presbytery on the edge of their estate, from designs by Charles Hansom. The Throckmorton family has been at Coughton Court since C15, and the house was a Catholic recusant centre from the 1570s. The terracotta tiled roof appears to be at the end of its life with several tiles dislodged and damp showing internally. Poor cementitious repairs, some recent, may further erode and damage the limestone. Historic England has met with the owner who is keen to address the repairs.
