Work is set to start on rebuilding a crumbling historic church in Preston.

Plans have been lodged to dismantle and rebuild the spire of Preston Seventh Day Adventist Church on Grimshaw Street.

The building, which is grade II listed, and the repairs are part-funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

As we reported in February last year the church, built between 1857 and 1859, is in desperate need of repair.

Anyone wishing to make comments on the planning application should log onto the Preston city council website. The application number is 06/2013/0057.
