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. St. Luke's has a lively and active congregation and in 2018 the PCC launched a project to repair and redevelop the church to better meet the needs of the local community, which should address the issues that put it at risk. Historic England hope to be able to assist with the development of this intiative.
