Church of St Mary, Patrixbourne Road, Bekesbourne-with-Patrixbourne - Canterbury

A fine Norman church with rare wheel window to the chancel and elaborately carved doorways on the south side. The church is suffering from the absence of rainwater goods to some roofs, cracked and disconnected rainwater goods discharging into blocked gullies and slipped roof tiles, all of which are contributing to deterioration of decorative stonework, water ingress and internal damp; including significant monuments.
