St. Saviours CIC

St Saviours Church Hall, Lambhay Hill, was built in the 1880s to serve as a Sunday school to the (former) Anglican church adjacent, itself built as a chapel of ease to the Church of the Holy Trinity in Southside Street. The hall is a handsome two-storey building of local limestone with Ham Hill stone dressings, erected by local building contractors Messrs Palk and Partidge. Bombing destroyed both St Saviours and Holy Trinity churches in 1941, but St Saviours Hall survived largely intact, and its upper room was subsequently converted into a chapel. In the mid 1990s painter Robert Lenkiewicz acquired the tenancy and housed a library in the building.

Since 2013 The Lenkiewicz Foundation and Fotonow CIC have been working in partnership to develop projects together and steward the building back to full health, which will include a future renovation supported by McCaren Architects. Thanks to support from Plymouth City Council’s Social Enterprise Investment Funding the building now has heating and we’re looking to take appropriate bookings for cultural and social enterprise projects in the space.
