Church of the Holy Trinity, Orton Lane, Twycross - Hinckley and Bosworth

Rural church of C14 origin but considerably restored / rebuilt c. 1841. The church suffers from periodic plaster ceiling failure. Plaster laths were spaced too closely historically and water ingress over time leads to periodic premature failure. Roofs were partially re-slated and some plaster panels were renewed c 2011 with grant aid from Historic England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund. A broader scheme of roof repairs and ceiling plaster renewal has been prepared but fundraising is difficult in the context of Covid-19.
