Church of St Peter, Main Street, Redmile - Melton

Parish church, C13 fabric with C14 tower and chancel. C15 and C19 re-modelling. The south aisle roof was re-covered in felt during the 1980s; however by 2011 the covering had reached the end of its life. A Heritage Lottery Fund grant was awarded in December 2011 for urgent works and these were completed in summer 2013. Internally there are substantial full height vertical cracks in the masonry at the west end of the north nave and south clerestory wall. These are thought to be stable and the result of past local mining activity. An external crack has re-opened and may require investigation.
