This is one of only two surviving cast-iron framed churches in the UK, possibly in the world. The third built was built in Liverpool but was demolished some years ago. Consequently, you are immediately struck by the spacious feel of the place. We stumbled on it by accident. Apparently there are two houses built using the same technique, that is,... More

This church is a rare survivor of a group of churches built in Liverpool by a local man John Craggs as a way of showing then state of the art caste iron technology. The church is clearly well loved and used and in its current shape is best described as shabby sheik . Well worth a visit the volunteers who... More

This building is a curiosity given the unusual cast iron structure. Inside has a lovely atmosphere and the volunteers will welcome you to either wander about alone or answer questions with enthusiasm, as you prefer. There are leaflets with info on the church and parish. Worth popping in for a look if you are visiting lark lane on a sat... More

St George's, now 200 years old was completed in 1814. St. Michael, which has more cast... More

Having trained as a Choirboy here in my early youth I then found out how special this, one of only two cast iron framed Churches in the country, is. Grade I Listed for its innovative use of this new material with the brickwork just there to fill the gaps in, a predecessor of many modern structural frame with curtain walling... More

the church itself just seems like any old church maybe but it has a history of being the church to have been built using cast iron girders a name also alloted to the now disappeared cast iron shore nearby
