Rolt Heights [87,12]
St. Peter's Church is a small church located in the suburb of Rolt Heights. St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church is a reinforced concrete structure designed in the Modern style, with a large side bell tower surmounted by a neon cross. It is sited diagonally on a prominent corner lot facing towards Powell Square.
At the time of the outbreak the church was in the middle of renovations that would have doubled its pew space and allowed an additional 100 parishioners to attend the church's sermons. Of course this build project was halted mere months into construction. While survivors cannot find shelter in the bare-bones architecture of the construction site, the existing church building is more than able to support their barricade efforts. If anything the large foundation pit dug next to the church adds to its defensive capabilities.
As a church, St. Peter's is an ideal shelter for inexperienced survivors seeking to stay off the streets at night. Therefore the building's barricade policy is important, as it promotes keeping the barricades at a level that will allow survivors without Free Running entry. It is for this reason that, similar to hospitals or entry points, churches need to have their barricades maintain at a level lower than most other buildings. Survivors wishing to heal the injured are also encouraged to visit the church, as inexperienced survivors who cannot reach or enter hospitals in the area may instead be sheltering here. Have pity and heal the injured.
This building should be Very Strongly (VS+2) barricaded at all times. This is in accordance with the mutually supported Rolt Heights Barricade Plan set forth in agreement with local survivor groups. This building is meant to serve as a shelter for Malton's inexperienced survivors and an entry point into the more fortified buildings around it.
It should be noted that as no specific survivor group monitors nor maintains the barricades associated with this barricade plan, so therefore it is not considered to be enforced. As such, survivors should always expect to find the barricades set at varying levels depending on the survivors inside the building. For the most part though, survivors should always expect to find this building over-barricaded rather than under-barricaded simply due to survivor nature.
