Church of St Mary, Cleeton St Mary, Bitterley - Shropshire (UA)

This church was built in 1876-8 and designed by Thomas Nicholson. It consists of a chancel with a lean-to north vestry and a nave with a tower built into its west end. Recent repairs to the chancel roof and other defects have confirmed that the original roof coverings are failing and require stripping and re-laying. All the roofs are of the same date and it is likely that these are also failing. Rainwater goods and the surface water drainage system also require overhauling. The congregation are looking to make a grant application to the Heritage Lottery Fund's Our Heritage scheme.
