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 pointing worsens the damp problems. The Parish has recently had a change in leadership, and Historic England hope to advise on a proposed project to revitalise the buildings, including addressing the repair issues.
