Church of St Swithin, Church Road, Bicker - Boston

Parish church with fabric from C12 to C16 and restoration from 1876 - 1911. Limestone ashlar construction. The church features a truncated nave, central tower and chancel with clerestory and aisles. A number of the roofs are coming to the end of their life and water is penetrating the interior. The rainwater goods require attention and there are some isolated stone repairs required to the tower. The church has been subject to heritage crime. A National Lottery Heritage Fund Heritage Grant was awarded mid-2019 to address some of the roof repairs. Works are due to complete late 2020.
