Remains of old church tower of St Mary and All Saints Church, Thundridge - East Hertfordshire

Ruinous C15 west tower belonging to the C11 to C12 church of St Mary and All Saints. Flint rubble with some dressings; a Romanesque doorway has been reset within the blocking of the chancel arch. The church was demolished in1853; only the tower remains substantially above ground. The building is suffering from decay, vandalism and anti-social behaviour. Repeated works to prevent access to the interior of the tower have failed, with damage increasing. In redundancy process, Discussions with the Diocese and the Local Authority continue on options for long-term future and for safeguarding fabric.
