Church of St Michael, Stowe IX Churches - Daventry

Church, with tall Saxon west tower, nave, chancel, north and south aisles, south porch. Body of church rebuilt in 1639 and again in 1859. The render to the tower is in poor condition and has detached in several places. There is some cracking to the chancel over the south arcade wall, possibly related to minor ground movement. The south aisle roof is leaking and valley gutter linings need repair. A small fundraising group has been established and sources of funding are being explored.
