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. Located in a 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. Several phases of roof repairs repairs have been undertaken, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. A further 'dome repair' phase is being planned and fundraising is underway.
