Restoration of grade II* building secures £4.2m from National Lottery Heritage Fund

Work to restore a grade II* listed church that is one the most endangered buildings in south-east England is set to start following the award of £4.2m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Sheerness Dockyard Church dates from 1828 and was designed by George Ledwell Taylor. It stands at the entrance to the former Royal Dockyard on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.

Hugh Broughton Architects and conservation specialists Martin Ashley Architects were appointed to restore and transform the building in a 2017 competition run by Sheerness Dockyard Preservation Trust.
