In February 2021 fallen mortar and masonry was discovered at the base of the tower and to a lesser degree, the porch. Subsequent architect and steeplejack inspections concluded that the pointing and masonry on all elevations was in poor condition; either loose, falling out or hollow. Also, small amounts of plant growth were found on all elevations together with loose lead flashing on the north elevation. Loose mortar and masonry have been removed and the base of the tower has been cordoned off as a safety precaution. To ensure the safety of visitors and the watertight integratory of this historic Grade II* listed building, urgent restoration is needed.
The work to re-point the tower and south porch and address the other structural problems has been costed at £60,000.
Once completed, the community will be able to continue using the church and churchyard as they have done for centuries passed.
