Church of St Paul, Wordsworth Avenue, Sheffield - Sheffield

1960s church by Sir Basil Spence. Repairs carried out to body of church, but further extensive repair needed to the concrete cloisters which extend from the front of the church. Some repairs grant-aided under the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England Repair Grants for Places of Worship scheme have been completed, but more work is required.
