Church of St Mary the Virgin, Church End, Stebbing - Uttlesford

An unusually well preserved fourteenth century church, with some later work including the three-bay stone rood screen, built in imitation of the C14 original by Woodyer in 1884. Settlement in many areas of the nave and aisle flooring, due to continuing leaks of a post WWII under floor heating system. In some areas this is becoming a health and safety issue. It's also primarily responsible for the salt migration and decay of medieval fabric. C16 series of painted texts in the north aisle in urgent need of consolidation. Major scheme of repairs being developed.
