Church of St Peter and St Paul, Church Lane, Algarkirk - Boston

Parish church dating from the C12. The roof slopes were in poor condition and required extensive re-roofing and this was completed in 2014 under a joint Historic England/Heritage Lottery Fund Repair grant for Places of Worship. Improvement to the below-ground drainage system is still required; there has been a recent outbreak of dry rot at floor level. The church is also experiencing structural movement, cracking to walling and damage to windows. The church has been a victim of heritage crime. A Heritage Lottery Fund Heritage Grant has been accepted and works are due to complete in 2020.
