Church of St John the Baptist, Main Street, South Croxton - Charnwood

Ironstone rubble church, with ashlar dressings throughout, dating mostly from C14. West tower with spire of large and squared rubble, three stages and buttressed, on an ashlar plinth. The tower masonry is weathered with some unstable high level stonework. There are signs internally that the nave roof and tower are leaking. The rainwater goods appear to require overhauling and possibly upgrading in places. The below ground drainage may also be poor. The PCC applied to the National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme in 2017 but were unsuccessful.
