Church of St Mary and All Saints, Main Street, Fotheringhay - East Northamptonshire

The church is a fine example of Perpendicular architecture with a long historical association with Fotheringhay Castle and the House of York. The present church, started in the early C15, formed the western part of a much larger church and grouping of collegiate buildings which extended to the east and south of the site. The church is at risk from dampness and suffers from poor external ground drainage, deteriorating ageing coverings to all roofs and some disrepair to stonework. Funding has been obtained and repairs are due to complete late 2018.
