Church of St Alban the Martyr, Conybere Street, Highgate - Birmingham

Large church designed by JL Pearson in 1879-81 in the Early English style constructed in red brick with sandstone ashlar. The terracotta tiled roof has passed the point of repair and needs to be replaced urgently. The C20 extensions are also in poor condition and in need of repair. Rainwater goods need attention and there is work to be done to the perimeter of the apse because the external ground level is higher than the internal level. The church was awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant for high level repairs in 2017 and the project is currently being developed.
