Church of St Peter, Rectory Lane, Gamston - Bassetlaw

A disused medieval church, C13, with a C14 tower and C15 clerestory. Chancel rebuilt in 1517 and later restored by GG Scott in 1855. The nave roof south gutter has failed and water ingress over several years has penetrated the wall head. Internally, the south aisle and tower plaster work has been removed to facilitate drying of the fabric; the interior remains in poor condition. There is a pervasive damp problem at low level. Some structural issues exist at the stair turret junction with the nave.The Churches Conservation Trust has begun a programme of repairs which is due to complete in 2020.
