Church of St Mary, Stottesdon - Shropshire (UA)

The church of St Mary consists of a nave with aisles, a west tower and a chancel. Although there are fragments of Saxon masonry within the west wall of the nave, the tower and aisles are C12. The church as seen today was largely completed by the C14 and was restored in the C19 by Thomas Blashill. The tile roof coverings date from C19 and require re-laying if not renewal along with the rainwater goods. Assorted high level masonry repairs are also required as is a new surface water drainage system. The congregation are exploring funding to carry out repairs.
