Church of St James, Church Street, Skillington - South Kesteven

A church dating from the C11 (with later alterations). There are problems with rising damp and the below-ground drainage system and water dispersal from the building needs to be addressed. It is possible that part of the nave requires re-roofing, and the north aisle and south transept/chapel and porch roof coverings require repair. There is water ingress to several roofs. Ivy growth has taken hold externally to the tower and vestry. The church has been the subject of heritage crime.
