Church of St Bartholomew, King Edward Avenue, Herne Bay - Canterbury

Early C20 church in an inventive Gothic style built to serve expanding population. Substantial, solid church with yellow brick and terracotta detailing. Has some defective tiling especially to the south aisle roof and generally poor condition of guttering and downpipes around the building. There is evidence of water ingress with blown plaster to south aisle at high level and within chancel at north east corner. Deterioration of external brick work particularly on north side. South porch showing further signs of water ingress.
