Church of St Peter and St Paul, Water Lane, Ospringe - Swale

A C13 church, with later accretions, all substantially restored in 1858-70 by EL Blackburne. Despite its apparent fair condition to the north, the south side of the church is suffering from serious internal damp as a result of multiple slipped tiles, blocked rainwater goods and extensive ivy growth. There is probable structural movement in the chancel.
