Church of St John the Baptist, Church Road, Boddington - South Northamptonshire

C13, C14 and C17 church, comprising aisled nave, chancel, south transept and C14 three-stage west tower, all of squared coursed ironstone. Square-headed windows to north and south and clerestories with reticulated, cusping and quatrefoil tracery. The four bay nave arcade has alternate round and octagonal piers.

Hood moulds and other protective stonework are in poor condition; window tracery is spalling and needs conservation. A condition survey has been produced. The PCC is keen to effect repairs.
