Church of St Nicholas, Main Street, Bulwick - East Northamptonshire

Mainly C13 and C14 church, restored 1870 by Slater & Carpenter. Rainwater goods are in poor condition and many leak badly, with some sections broken. Maintenance or repair is urgently needed. Some gutters are blocked with grass and vegetation. External drainage and water dispersal in general is poor, with ineffective drainage channels contributing to dampness internally. Some evidence of leaks to the nave and south aisle roofs, and the chancel ridge is also letting in water. Sources of grant funding for repairs are being explored,
