Church of St John the Baptist, Nash - Shropshire (UA)

This C13 church has a nave and chancel under one continuous roof, a west tower and a south porch. Built as a chapel of Burford, it was given a broached spire in the C14 and a north aisle in 1865: the nave roof structure also dates from C19. The plaster infill ceiling panels to the nave and north aisle roofs have become unstable with age and require renewal. The spire timber cladding also needs to be overhauled. Emergency masonry repairs to the east gable were carried out in 2018. A scheme to address urgent building fabric repairs and provide new internal facilities is planned for the future.
