Church of St Mary, Highley - Shropshire (UA)

Although the nave and lower chancel of this church are Norman in origin, the addition of the west tower and other later alterations and insertions suggest that most of the existing building fabric dates from C15 and later. The church was restored in 1881 by Pountney Smith but the tiles covering the tower roof, the lead lined parapet gutter and areas of the tower staircase masonry are now either failing and/or require assorted repairs to address significant defects. The congregation are exploring funding to carry out repairs.
