Church of St Mary, Station Road, Sutterton - Boston

A large limestone Fenland church of C12, C13, C14, C15 containing extensive Romanesque survivals. The crossing tower, aisles and south transept were remodelled by Edward Browning 1861-3. The north transept has a large C15 traceried window for which the older roof beams were cut, causing a structural weakness. Its roof has been leaking for many years and the timbers are affected by rot. The stonework needs extensive repointing; some C19 stone is poor quality and needs replacement. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship was awarded and repairs are expected to be completed late 2018.
