Church of St Peter, North Hill, Colchester - Colchester

C15 church, re-modelled C17 and with C19 alterations. Stone rubble with brick west tower of 1758, the upper two stages of which have rusticated quoins. The high-level stonework is in fair condition. Perimeter gutters are undersized and below ground drainage is inadequate. Movement in north porch. Plaster fall internally due to damp ingress. Nave and chancel roofs in need of very urgent repair. The congregation launched a major regeneration project in 2019 to address repairs and greater use.
