North Wootton (Old Parish Church of St. Mary Magdalene)

North Wootton Church

St. Mary Magdalene's Church, North Wootton, Dorset

Only the ruins of the west tower of the former parish church survives, visible in a field behind farm buildings. As far as I could ascertain, there is no public access. The tower is early C15; the nave and chancel were demolished circa in the 1880s when a new church was built. English Heritage's risk register reports that "the tower is completely encased with ivy and in a ruinous condition. In need of repairs, particularly to the roof."
