Church of St Michael, Ravenstone with Snibstone - North West Leicestershire

Parish Church of early C14, restored C19. Stonework is in very poor condition, particularly to the octagonal broached spire and tower; plant growth, failing cement pointing, significant deep pocketing. 2018 Quinquennial Inspection identified a number of movement cracks which require urgent investigation/repair. Urgent repairs are needed to the tower, the internal and external faces of the spire and masonry elsewhere. A defective rainwater disposal system is causing significant damp issues within the church and requires attention. The church is keen to affect repairs and is seeking funding.
