Church of St Peter and All Saints, Battlesden - Central Bedfordshire (UA)

Medieval church of C13 origin with later additions and alterations. Rubble walls with later brick to both C18 tower and modern parapets. Internal damp; black mould on walls which were only re-limewashed some four years ago. Various possible causes of damp can be identified. The tower has received quite a lot of cementitious patch repairs, which is not a good combination with the soft 'clunch' stone used for construction. Some structural movement. Diocese and Historic England to liaise with Parish over issues and solutions.
