Maiden Street Methodist Church, Maiden Street, Weymouth - Weymouth and Portland

Former Methodist church. Fire in January 2002 left the church a gutted, roofless ruin. Subsequent health and safety works completely cleared the interior. Consent was granted in 2007 but not implemented for conversion / reconstruction to mixed residential and commercial use. The site changed hands in 2016. Historic England is in discussions with the new owner regarding the options available to them.
