Church of St Peter, St Peter's Road, Leicester - Leicester, City of (UA)

Urban church of 1872-79 by GE Street in a Gothic style. By 2014, tower masonry and roof coverings were in poor condition and a fan scaffold had been erected over the west door to protect visitors from falling fragments. A first phase of repairs has been completed with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund under the Grants for Places of Worship to address the deterioration of the tower. Due to unforeseen circumstances repairs to the baptistery and south porch roof were not completed.Repairs are also required to a number of other roofs. Discussions are on going about prioritising work.
