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 been repaired with a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the church has successfully applied for a second phase of funding for repairs, this time for the west elevation. Works are now in progress.
