Church of St Oswald, Church Street, Crowle - North Lincolnshire (UA)

Parish church constructed of coursed limestone ashlar. Much of the Norman church remains - the south nave wall complete with corbel frieze with carved faces. The west window to the tower has carved ball flowers and keeled shafts. The north aisle was rebuilt in 1884 under a restoration by AS Ellis. Its roof is covered in short life mineral felt with inadequate drainage and is now in very bad condition and leaking. Stonework is suffering from inappropriate cement pointing. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship grant has been awarded.
