Church of St John, Church Lane, Perlethorpe cum Budby - Newark and Sherwood

Church, built in 1876 to the designs of Anthony Salvin for the 3rd Earl Manvers. In the C14 Decorated style. Restored in 1904. The church sits within the rural and mature landscape of Thoresby Park. The building is suffering from extensive and severe salt damage to internal stonework, with significant and widespread stone decay. Numerous areas of external stone are also affected. The causes are not yet fully understood and further research is necessary, but some downpipes leak, there is extensive cement repointing and gutters are susceptible to blockage from fallen leaves.
