Waterloo: Stanley Road & Christ Church
Waterloo: Stanley Road & Christ Church
The tower of Christ Church is a prominent local landmark, but the church is now disused, and has been threatened with demolition, despite being a Grade II* listed building. It was designed by the renowned Victorian church architects, Austin and Paley of Lancaster, and built between 1891 and 1894 of the local red sandstone. However it was declared redundant by the Church Commissioners in 1982.

The fundamental dilemma with all buildings like this is that it needs maintenance, but who pays for it, the Church Commissioners as owners, or the various bodies who say that it cannot be demolished because of its architectural importance?
