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 bell-cote, 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 also need to be overhauled together with selective repointing of areas of high level masonry. Removal of a defective water cistern adjacent to the north wall has been undertaken.
