Church of St Giles, Barrow - Shropshire (UA)

St Giles is one of the most complete surviving early churches in the county and consists of a C11 nave and chancel and C12 west tower with a C18 top stage: the late C19 north side chapel replaced a C17 earlier addition and the south porch was added C18. Restored by GE Street, it has steeply pitched plain clay tile roof coverings and replacement plastic rainwater goods: significant areas of primary masonry survive intact, Ineffective surface water drainage and raised ground levels exacerbate damp conditions inside the church and rainwater goods and tiled roof coverings require renewal.
