Church of St Paul, Mores Lane, Brentwood - Brentwood

Parish church 1878, by EC Lee. Flint walls with stone dressings. Leaking iron gutters on stone stringcourses starting to cause failure in stone. Evidence of active leakage. Much Bath stone in evidence, some of which appears to be of poor quality and particularly susceptible to decay due to excess moisture. In 2016 the Parish succeeded in obtaining a Listed Places of Worship Roof Repairs Grant for re-roofing but much decaying stonework remains. Parish considering potential sources for future grants.
