Church of St Giles, Farlow - Shropshire (UA)

The church of St Giles was built in 1857-8 and consists of a nave with a west end bellcote and a south side porch and a lower chancel with a north side vestry. With the exception of the south side of the nave, all other roof slopes are failing; underlying plaster infill ceiling panels to the exposed roof structures are also known to be unstable. Rainwater goods require increased capacity together with a new surface water drainage system. Works to re-lay the north slope of the nave roof and undertake assorted improvements to the rainwater goods are planned to be completed by the end of 2018.
