Church of St Helen, Main Road, Theddlethorpe St. Helen - East Lindsey

This parish church dates from the C14; C15 tower constructed of squared green sandstone with limestone bands, chancel and aisles were rebuilt by SS Teulon in 1866 using mixed stone rubble. Clerestory stonework is eroding and render lumps are falling onto south aisle roof. East nave wall is holed; stone fall has damaged the chancel roof slating. Gutters and downpipes are in very bad condition and are not discharging water away from the building. South nave rainwater is eroding south aisle buttress stonework.
