Church of St Michael, Ranby Road, Market Stainton - East Lindsey

Former church built in greenstone, limestone and brick. C13 origins, with a mid C14 west tower. Restored in 1848. The church has been the victim of heritage crime. There are widespread open joints, badly weathered stonework, intrusive vegetation growth and evidence of structural movement. Temporary roof coverings to the nave and chancel present a risk of water ingress. Internal plasterwork has been damaged and has fallen in places. The building is currently being marketed.
