Church of St Dunstan (formerly St Osmund), Bournemouth Road, Poole - Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole (UA)

Former parish church now in use by Greek Orthodox congregation. Constructed largely of red brick in 1904 by GAB Livesay in the free Byzantine style, and completed by ES Prior in partnership with Arthur Grove between 1913 and 1914. Dome was partially rebuilt in 1922-4 by Sidney Tugwell. Suffering extensively from failure of guttering, drainage and roof maintenance, there has been a substantial impact on the internal decoration and integrity of the brick work. National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant for Places of Worship Project development works completed. Repair funding applied for Spring 2019.
