Church of St Nicholas, Church Lane, Hockerton - Newark and Sherwood

Former church, C12 to C14 work, with a restoration by Hodgson Fowler in 1876. The building is in very bad condition. Previous historic movement is evident in the stonework, and it is possible this is still ongoing. Rainwater goods are defective and choked with vegetation and detritus. There are numerous slipped and missing slates to pitched roofs and some ridge tiles are loose. Some vegetation has been cleared from the north side of the church. A new use is being sought.
