Church of St Nicholas, Church Plain, Wells-Next-the-Sea - North Norfolk

Large parish church located within the town. Originally of C15 date but burnt down in1879 and rebuilt. The building is well maintained and used for both worship and community activities. However, a detailed inspection of the tower revealed that the parapet is loose and suffering from the effects of decaying and expanding iron cramps. There are also loose areas of face work and cracks which require attention. The turret stair exhibits cracking.
