Church of St Thomas the Apostle, Pear Tree Road, Derby - Derby, City of (UA)

Large urban parish church of rock faced masonry of c1881 by J Peacock. By 2013 tiled roofs, weatherings and flashings were defective and there was considerable water ingress and woody rooted vegetation at high level. An initial phase of roof and high level masonry and internal plaster repairs were completed in early 2016 with grant aid from the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme. A second Heritage Lottery Fund scheme which includes the repair of the badly deformed Rose Window is due to complete in 2018.
