Rileys (former Temperance Billiard Hall), 233-241, Lewisham High Street SE13 - Lewisham

A temperance billiard hall built 1909-10, originally incorporating a café, lounge and shops facing Lewisham High Street. Listed as a well-surviving example of an uncommon building type. The building has been empty for a number of years. It has been gutted internally and is showing signs of neglect. There is water ingress on the upper floor. Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent were granted in 2017 for conversion to a church, with associated changes to restore and change parts of the building. Works are currently in progress and are due to complete in early 2022.
