Church of St John the Baptist, Church Lane, Muston, Bottesford - Melton

Church, C13 nave and aisles, C14 tower and chancel. Restored 1875-6 by C Kirk. A Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund grant was accepted in May 2015 and the nave, chancel, south aisle and south porch roofs have been repaired. Rainwater goods have also been renewed. However, there are no flashings to the south porch roof and the covering appears to be letting in water. Repointing is required to the ironstone tower and there is poor cementitious pointing to walls elsewhere. Works are also required to address the drainage issues.
