Church of St Oswald, Dunham on Trent
This consists of a 19th century nave and chancel attached to the remaining 15th century tower of the medieval church. The church was made redundant in 2011 and is showing signs of dilapidation. At the time of my visit the nave and chancel were roped off as slates were loose on the roof, re were signs indicating that the temporary barrier was due for imminent replacement by a 6 ft security fence. The future of the church is clearly at risk.

The most prominent feature of the church is the 15th century tower in Perpendicular style with its exceptionally large and ornately traceried bell-chamber openings. The body of the church was first rebuilt in the late 18th century following severe flooding, and then almost completely rebuilt in 1862 by the Nottingham architect T C Hine. Parts of the 18th century fabric remain in the south wall of the nave, The Victorian church is essentially in Decorated style.

The interior is a typical Victorian Gothic revival unity.
