Save London's Rochester Square Church Building

This petition had 463 supporters

The Rochester Square Spiritualist Church was built in 1926 from donations made by some of London's poorest people. All chipped in to see this Church built. 

The famous Sir Arthur Conan Doyle even laid a foundation stone at this church as did the founding fathers. The names of the poor who generously gave what little they had to see this church built, are engraved on the foundation stones as a lasting memory of their faith and generosity. 

Sir Arthur later became well known for his detective series Sherlock Holmes and Dr.Watson although Conan also had a medical degree and cared very much about 'human rights' and helped fight for those who needed his help, he was also a man of deep faith.

A company now hopes to tear this building to the ground and put flats in its place!!! 

The building has been neglected for years but deserves a new lease on life as a museum for the famous Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Let not the great history of Rochester Square be defiled by those who see nothing but dollar signs before their eyes. Historic buildings, once gone, can never be replaced. 

Help us save not only the historic building and memory of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but also a lasting testament to those who gave everything to see this brought to life!
