St Leonard's Church, Cotheridge (Model)

Recent Photograph of St Leonard's Church (Model) (Cotheridge)

This model of the church when the roof of the nave collapsed is in the porch. It happened in November 1947 and thanks to the generosity of its parishioners its restoration was completed in 1961. The church was surveyed again in 1979, when it was decided unless extensive repairs were carried out, the same could happen again. Thanks to a generous grant from English Heritage and loans from the Historic Churches Preservation Trust and Worcester Diocese, this work was completed in 1987. Today the church is part of the benefice of The Lower Teme Valley, which also includes Broadwas and Knightwick.
