Church of St John the Baptist, Market Place, Whitwick - North West Leicestershire

Parish church, late C13, with nave, aisles, chancel, south porch and tower. In 2008 the nave, north and south aisle roofs were repaired and associated rainwater goods were renewed with joint Historic England and Heritage Lottery Fund grant aid. Some further repair work to roofs and gutters has been completed this year. Fabric is generally in good order. However, there is a need for structural repairs to the south porch. Ground investigations are required to understand the cause of the problem.
