Church of St Michael, The Street, Frinton and Walton - Tendring

A substantial late medieval church of flint and stone rubble, much restored in the C19. The building suffers from subsidence at the east end of the chancel, resulting in substantial cracks in the walls and at the junction of the chancel roof and the east gable. Structural movement continues, with previously repaired areas cracking again. Monitoring, soil investigation and analysis in progress for repair options to be considered by the PCC.
