Church of St Mary including church rooms and surrounding wall, Regent Road, Great Yarmouth - Great Yarmouth

Roman Catholic church, Perpendicular style with late Decorated features, built 1848-1850 by JJ Scoles for the Society of Jesus. Built of knapped flint with limestone ashlar dressings. A jointly funded Historic England and Heritage Lottery Fund Repair Grants for Places of Worship grant was awarded in 2011 to stabilise west end and re-roof presbytery link. These works are now complete but other urgent and wide-scale structural and weathering problems are of concern. The most urgent area is the chancel.
