Church of St Mary De Castro, Castle Yard, Leicester - Leicester, City of (UA)

A National Lottery Heritage Fund grant was awarded in 2011 for a detailed assessment of the spire. The condition of masonry was such that urgent dismantling was necessary, this was completed in summer 2014 and remains missing. Further works are required including investigation works into the drainage, plans to do this were put on hold due to funds. The next phase of works is repair and re-building of the Eastern gable to South Aisle and stonwork repairs to the South Porch. A timeline for these works has not yet been agreed.
