Church of St Kenelm, Manor Road, Minster Lovell - West Oxfordshire

Mainly mid C15 church, incorporating some earlier work. Coursed stone rubble; stone slate roofs, 2-bay chancel, central tower, 2-bay transepts and 3-bay nave. North side: gabled stone porch to left of nave. The limestone slate roofs to the north and south transept roofs are now suffering water ingress and have much vegetation. There is now an urgent need for repair. The Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme has funded a development phase grant and it is anticipated that full repair works will be undertaken between autumn 2018 and late spring 2019.
