Church of St John, The Harbour, West Bay, Bridport - Dorset (UA)

This 1930s Arts and Crafts church is a simple, low building on the quayside, built to serve the local fishing community. Since it was added to the Heritage at Risk register in 2014, the congregation have made very good progress. Although there are still some areas of damp, and the leaded windows are leaking, the roofs have been repaired and the building is beginning to dry out. Some further work is needed but it is improving.
