Church of St Paul, Church Hill, Woodhouse - Charnwood

Victorian parish church. The chancel has a significant historic crack through the north wall and stained glass has been removed from the westernmost window as a precautionary measure. The crack has been monitored for a number of years and movement observed during this time has been limited. Historic England has provided technical support and advice. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship was awarded in the spring of 2017 to address localised foundation repairs and crack stitching. This work was completed in spring 2018.
