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, the Church Commissioners are supporting the re-covering of the chancel roof. A National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant for Places of Worship is supporting the cost of the remaining repairs. Work started in May 2019 and is programmed to be complete in the middle of October 2019.
