Church of St Mary the Virgin, St James's Street, Brighton - Brighton and Hove, City of (UA)

A large late Victorian red brick building by William Emerson. Comprises a chancel with 5-sided apse, two vestries, transepts and four bay nave with north and south aisles and incomplete tower. The exterior brickwork, stone around the windows and other stone details are in a very poor condition and there is damp penetration at north end. The north elevation has now been repaired with Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship. The church has successfully applied to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a second phase of repairs this time for the west elevation. Works are due to start in 2018.
