Church of All Saints, Worthen with Shelve - Shropshire (UA)

This small church set below the Stiperstones was built in 1839-40 to the designs of the rector, the Revd TF More, under John Carline's supervision. It consists of a nave and chancel in one with a narrow west tower. The walls are constructed in coursed rubble stone and roofs covered by plain clay tiles. All of the cast iron rainwater goods require overhauling, realignment and/or renewal as does the surface water drainage system. Assorted minor roof repairs are also required. The cause of the water staining on the tower ceiling gallery needs to be established and the source eliminated.
