Church of St Martin and attached cloister and vicarage, Dixon Street, Wolverhampton - Wolverhampton, City of

Church, cloister and vicarage built 1938-9 by Lavander and Twentyman. Brick Modernist church with pantile roofs, coped gables and parapets. The elevations are plain except for the statue of St Martin by Donald Potter on the west facade above the entrance. The interior is remarkably intact. The church was originally lined with asbestos, which is still in place. The roof and gutters are in need of repair so that leaks do not disturb the asbestos below. Previous water ingress meant the building was closed until the source of the leaks was repaired. Subsequently comprehensive repair is needed.
