Church of St Margaret, Stoven, Brampton with Stoven - Waveney

Parish church. C12 doorways. The lower portion of the tower is possibly medieval; remainder entirely rebuilt 1849-50 in neo-Norman style. The tower is of flint rubble, the bell-chamber stage faced with knapped flint; the nave and chancel are plastered; stone dressings. Slated roofs with courses of fish-scale slates. Poor construction in C19 has resulted in serious structural failures in masonry, particularly the south nave wall, and water penetration. Roof poor; interior fair; rainwater goods satisfactory.
