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. Parish have completed priority 1 actions from 2017 quinquennial inspection report; priority 2 action will be addressed in 2019.
