Church of St Mary Magdalene, Stockland Bristol - Sedgemoor

Parish church built in 1865 of blue lias rubble stone. Designed by Arthur of Plymouth for the Daniel family of Stockland Manor. Roofs need re-covering and there are a number of slipped tiles. Structural stability is poor with cracking to window surrounds and major fracture through the tower, with loose stonework on the parapet and vice turret. Some repairs to valley gutter and one window which was blown in were carried out in 2017 but the church remains in a very poor state.
