Church of St Mary, Staunton on Wye - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Large rural parish church high in a hillside village overlooking the River Wye. The nave has a C12 core, the west tower is C13 and the chancel and porch date from C18. The hipped tiled roof has holes and the nave sandstone slate roof has slipped slates. The gutter on the north side has failed. The internal plaster is affected by damp and has fallen in places. A National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant for Places of Worship was awarded in 2016 and repairs are in progress.
