Parish Church (dedication unknown), Boraston - Shropshire (UA)

This C12 church was mostly rebuilt between 1884 -7 by Henry Curzon at the expense of Lord Northwick of Burford House. Built as a chapel of Burford, it consists of a nave with a west tower and shingled spire, a south porch and an apsidal chancel with north side vestry. Differential settlement has occurred at the east end of the church and is thought to be the result of ineffective surface water drainage. The chancel and vestry tiled roof coverings require repair and the oak shingles to the spire complete renewal. A new surface water drainage system is due to be installed by the end of 2018.
