Church of St Mary, Fratton Road, Kingston - Portsmouth, City of (UA)

Church designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield and built of flint and Bath stone with plain tile roofs between 1887-9. The church has received significant grant aid from Historic England/Heritage Heritage Fund in three phases and this has dealt with some of the roofs and tower. Repairs are needed to various roofs, the south clerestory and chancel windows. The congregation is considering how to address these issues.
