St Margaret's church, Roughton

Grade II*listed

The church dates from the thirteenth century onwards, and is built in greenstone and brick with slate roofs.
There is a western tower, nave and chancel.
The tower dates from the fifteenth century, with later fifteenth century brick above. There are two bells from the seventeenth century which are still rung.
The nave is built in squared limestone with the upper part in later brick work. The nave retains two doorways from the late twelfth century. The windows date from the restoration of 1870. At the west end there are commandment boards.

There is a plain arch to the chancel which is probably from the thirteenth century, and has a priest's door on the south side. The chancel has an 18th century east window. The other windows are from the late 13th century. There is also a brass candelabrum from the 18th century.

There is a Norman font with a 16th century wooden cover.

The church was restored in 1870 when it was re-roofed, pews were installed (probably from the sixteenth century), and the tower was opened up to the nave, and chancel paved with tiles.

There was further restoration to the top of the tower in 1998, a new electrical installation in 2001, and the chancel roof was renewed in 2003.
