Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Saviour was built on Walton Place between 1838 and 1840, seating 1,200. A district chapelry was assigned to the church in 1842, largely from the parish of Holy Trinity. The Rector of Holy Trinity was the patron of the church. The church ran a mission hall in Marlborough Road. There was no full-time vicar in 1992 and the church was closed in 1995. It was proposed to retain part of the church for services and convert the remainder of the building into housing. This was completed by 2003 leaving a church seating 80, served by the vicar of Saint Simon Zelotes.
