Church of St Mary Magdalene, Church Lane, Barwick - South Somerset

Parish church C13 and later. Ham stone roughly squared and coursed, with ashlar dressings; plain clay tiles between coped gables to chancel south aisle and nave, stone slates to south porch. Chancel is an 1885 rebuild incorporating earlier fragments. The tower roof is in poor condition, the bell frame needs work undertaken and the nave and aisle roofs are also in poor condition. The congregation applied for a Listed Places of Worship Roof Repairs Grant for work to be carried out in 2017 but was unsuccessful.
