Church of St Mary, Church Lane, Holt, Baconsthorpe - North Norfolk

Parish church dating to1260 with fine interiors. An Historic England and Heritage Lottery Fund Repair Grants for Places of Worship grant was awarded in December 2011 for repairs which are now completed. However, excessive damp still affects the building throughout. The gutters to the nave and aisles leak and the below-ground drainage is ineffective. The building has been a victim of heritage crime.
