Parish Church of St Michael the Archangel, Bridgegate, West Retford - Bassetlaw

Large urban church with tall decorative tower and spire. Earliest sections date to C14 but church extensively restored C19 and extended C20. Masonry is generally in fair condition but there are poor parapet abutment details and various localised repairs are evident. There is significant erosion of jamb stones and jointing to south porch arch and gable. Roof coverings leak at abutments and there is water ingress damage internally. A Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund grant enabled roofs and rainwater goods to be repaired in 2016. Other work is needed.
