Church of St Wilfrid, Main Street, North Muskham - Newark and Sherwood

Church, C12 origin. Nave, chancel, tower with north and south aisles. The church has been the victim of heritage crime. A Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund grant was offered in 2016 and grant aided works to the rainwater goods and the parapet gutter to the tower have been completed. Considerable masonry repair is still needed in many areas and some stonework is becoming unstable. Without urgent repair there is potential for loss of historic fabric and the church is therefore at risk.
