Church of St Cuthbert, Hayling Avenue, Portsmouth - Portsmouth, City of (UA)

1914-15. By E Stanley Hall. The original east end apse was destroyed by bombing, and the present east end wall is post-war reconstruction. This has been remodelled in the last 10 years to provide community facilities and the present church sits in the western two bays of the former nave of the church only. The roofs over the worship space and the bell tower are in poor condition. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme grant was used to develop the project, but funding for actual repairs has yet to be found.
