Church of St Mary, Kirkings Lane, Over Silton, Hambleton - Hambleton

A remote medieval church, in the middle of a field. The roof of the Norman nave is hidden behind a parapet, but the roof of the medieval chancel is covered with coarse stone slates. This roof and that of the adjoining vestry are in poor repair. In fulfilment of its responsibilities for Chancel Liability for this particular building the Church Commissioners are supporting the re-covering of the chancel roof. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship is supporting the cost of the remaining repairs. Work started in 2018.
