Former Royal Dockyard Church and attached wall and railings, Sheerness Dockyard - Swale

Former St Paul's Parish Dockyard Church. Built originally in 1828, by architect George Taylor, but partially rebuilt after a fire in 1884. Empty since 1970 and severely damaged by fire in 2001. A new trust has acquired the building and hopes to secure its repair and conversion for uses including community facilities. A planning application for this work was submitted in June 2018. Historic England grant aided a condition survey and holding repairs which were completed in February 2018. An application for major funding to the Heritage Lottery Fund has been successful.
