Church of St Luke, Greetham Street, Portsmouth - Portsmouth, City of (UA)

Neo-Norman church by Thomas Hellyer of Ryde. Dated 1858-61. Built of flint and stone with a Welsh slate roof. At risk due to extensive damp problems caused by water ingress resulting mainly from faulty and undersized rainwater goods. Cementitious repointing worsens the damp problems. In September 2019, the church launched a £1.5million redevelopment scheme, which since then has seen the removal of the church pews, the laying of a new floor and the use of the building as a co-working hub called 'The Host'. It is not known if the works have or will address the repair issues.
