We in the Friends of Ignatius Church have been trying preserve the building and at least the contents from water damage, demolishment and being made into flats!! The diocese say we cannot go in because it is dangerous and the developers have shown little interest since the recession. We believe there is a small wooden war memorial still in the church. Maybe a request from your organisation would find a better home for it as it deserves.
