Church of St Andrew, Fairstead Lane, Little Cressingham - Breckland

Parish church. The C15 tower is partially demolished and the two westernmost bays of the nave and south aisle are roofless. The two westernmost bays of the north aisle have been demolished except for the west wall. The present entrance is to the west in the brick wall dividing the roofed church in use from the ruin. A corrugated roof covers the south aisle, while the nave is roofed in plain tile. Roof is leaking with damp penetration in aisles. Vegetation growth on the building is also an issue.
