Church of St Edith, The Green, Orton-on-the-Hill, Twycross - Hinckley and Bosworth

Parish church, early C14 with later alterations and additions. The walls are of ashlar construction. Recessed spire rebuilt 1797 and partly taken down in 1950. The chancel roof was recently renewed. The church was subject to heritage crime in 2019. Works to address these issues are now complete. Internal plaster work in the south aisle, stonework and glazing on the windows and the internal stonework of the spire require further investigation. The Parochial Church Council remain keen to effect repairs.
