Church of St Peter and St Paul, High Street, Burgh Le Marsh - East Lindsey

This large stone parish church has a tall four-stage tower. Some of the tower pinnacles are unstable and have been taken down for safety. The nave roof is a C16 tie beam timber structure suffering timber decay due to roof leaks. The covering is no longer watertight as the material has started to fail. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship has been offered for roof repairs and work is due to complete in 2018.
