Church of St Peter and St Paul, Atherton Street, New Brighton - Wirral

Significant local landmark with large dome above crossing. 1930 cast concrete barrel vaulted shell roof construction to nave, transept and sanctuary. Elevations in brick with single glazed steel windows. Very exposed marine environment. Later cement repointing and failure of the roof membrane has led to significant ingress of water and damage to the interior. Significant phases of roof repairs repairs have been undertaken, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship scheme, but further phases required.
