Deserted village, Godwick, Tittleshall - Breckland

Ruinous church located at the western end of the deserted medieval village of Godwick. Probably in use until c1630. Dual designated as scheduled monument and grade II listed building. Serious decay of flintwork on tower, including at high level, and in need of wide-ranging repair and consolidation. Cracking of brick and ashlar dressings around opening on west side of tower (possibly related to an earlier rebuilding); this area is at high risk of collapse. Repair scheme has been agreed and will be implemented during 2019.
