St Saviour's, Walmer

St Saviour's, Walmer

St Saviour's is a church on the seafront of Walmer, Kent, United Kingdom. It is dedicated to no saint, but to the Holy Saviour (ie to Christ directly). It was built in 1848, in the Neo-Gothic architectural style, as a chapel of ease for the town's boatmen (who, in the days of sail, took supplies out to vessels in the Downs) and to take the pressure off Old St Mary's (previously the parish's only church).

When the Walmer Lifeboat House was built opposite it around 23 years later, it was built in a similar Neo-Gothic style.
