Former United Reformed Church, Cambridge Road, Hastings - Hastings

Very large and significant building in central Hastings. Built as a Congregational church in 1885. Many original interior features remain. Rainwater system very poor and needs replacing with more outlets, wider rainwater goods, more efficient drops. Movement cracks are allowing rain penetration. Discussions are taking place with the new owners, a new religious group, who are carrying out emergency works and considering funding options for full repairs.
