Church of St John, Church Road, Newcastle on Clun - Shropshire (UA)

This church was designed by Edward Haycock in 1846 and completed in 1848. It consists of a wide nave with a west end bellcote, a south porch, north vestry and a short low chancel. Walls are constructed in coursed rubble siltstone and steeply pitched roofs covered with Welsh slate laid in equal courses. Failure of slate fixings is an on-going issue and roofs require stripping and re-laying. Defective rainwater goods need to be overhauled and the north side cistern removed to prevent further saturation of the adjacent wall. Selective repointing of areas of high level masonry is also required.
