Church of St Mary, Horton, Hackleton - South Northamptonshire

Former church, C13 and C14 fabric, repaired and altered c1720 at the expense of the Earl of Halifax. There is a known history of seasonal structural movement, and internal plasterwork has fallen as a result. Rainwater goods are in very bad condition. There are areas of poor stonework, such as to the tower and areas affected by leaking gutters. The chancel roof covering is in poor condition, with slipped and missing slates. The building is being marketed as a residential property by the Church Commissioners. Historic England is advising on conversion proposals.
