Church of St Michael and All Angels, Tatenhill - East Staffordshire

The church dates from the C13 and consists of a tall nave and chancel, a south porch and a west tower. It is constructed in buff/red sandstone and has steeply pitched roofs covered in red plain clay tiles. Notwithstanding assorted alterations and changes made throughout its history, the church was restored in the C19 by GF Bodley when the existing roofs were retiled. These now urgently require renewal. Following an unsuccessful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme in 2017, limited patch repairs were carried out in 2018.
