    A lovely set of 12 bells in St Nicks.

    • 1745: New spire erected and tower heightened.
    • 1810: On Sunday Morning February 11th “a few minutes before the commencement of divine service, while the bells were ringing the second peal.” A portion of the congregation was already in the church, and the masonry falling to the east “instantly burst through the roof and fell along the centre aisle.” The result was that twenty-five people were killed, of whom eighteen were children. New tower was begun in September
    • 1812-1813: A new ring of 12 bells was cast by William Dobson of Downham, Norfolk.
    • 1814: First peal on the bells.
    • 1815: Tower and lantern completed
    • J.J. Raven writes in 'The bells of England' about Dobson’s bells “His greatest work was the twelve of St Nicholas, Liverpool. I have been told that the Liverpool folk were determined to rival St. Peter Mancroft, Norwich, bell for bell, but they tied Dobson down too tightly, so that his heaviest peal is not his best.”
    • 1825: The fourth was recast.
    • 1895: An Ellacombe chiming apparatus was installed. This had been was removed by c1938 and has never been replaced although the holes still exist in the ringing room ceiling behind the present 10th rope.
    • 1911: Tenor recast by John Warner & Sons, London and rehung the bells on new fittings. Cast iron stocks, plain bearings. (Taylor’s records per David Cawley)
    • C1938: Taylor’s report that Hoffman ball bearings fitted to bells 10-12 at some stage fitted locally. These three bells are reported to run well. There was also a disused clock hammer on the 11th bell. Looking at the old frame drawings, the tenor rope fell approximately where the present 9th rope falls now.
    • 1939: Last peal on the Dobson bells.
    • C1940 The bells were removed and stored at Taylor’s for the duration of World War II.
    • 1941: Church burnt out during a bombing raid. .
    • 1952: The old ring of twelve was recast by Taylor’s, a flat sixth and sanctus bells added. Further metal was added to that of the old peal from the church of St. Martin in the Fields, Silvester Street, Liverpool.

    Very nice, Lindy.
    It opened in 1865.
    The architect was Sir James Picton, who was the most famous Liverpool local historian of his time.
    Various things in Liverpool were named after him.

    It's a huge church. Pity it's looking a bit run down, it's been in a state of neglect for many years now. No one seems to be maintaining the building. The areas at the sides of the church are full of weeds and litter and the whole place needs a makeover.
    The church has always been popular, it used to have a youth club and coffee mornings etc, - it's still in use but looking a bid neglected now.

    The maintenance of the building will of course be the responsibility of the congregation and ultimately of the whole community it serves. If the community feels the building is being neglected, then they should join the church and provide funds for its repair and maintenance.

    This church opened in 1872 as a Welsh Baptist Chapel, and, as far as I know, didn't become a "Church of Christ" until well into the 20th century.
    I was one of at least 3 people who contributed to this piece on toxteth.net, but it wasn't made clear who contributed what.

    For the record, this was my contribution:

    Sited at the end of Geraint Street. This opened in 1872 as the Welsh Baptist Chapel, with 350 seats.
    The Welsh congregation is known to have moved from here to Earlsfield Road Welsh Baptist Chapel in the early 20th Century.
    The 1954 OS map shows the building as "Electro Plating Works", but it was Tru-Form Joinery by 1993.

    I'm gonna put this on, only because even though it was originally built at a Villa in 1851, it was taken over in the 1900's by the First Christ the Scientist Sect, who used the building till the 1960's. Location - Queens Drive, West Derby.

There has been a suggestion that the church is to be used as practice space for the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. I'm not sure if that has been finally agreed.

    The building was funded by the adopted daughter of William Imrie of Mossley Hill, co founder of Liverpool's White Star shipping line of later Titanic fame. She converted to Roman Catholicism following the death of her father and became a nun. William Imrie was a member of the High church wing of the Church of England and worshipped at St Margaret's Church, Prince's rd, Toxteth
    I have walked past that a few times on the other side, in Bute Street, is a large bell in the garden. I was going to take a photo last week but there was a lot of litter and the lead on the canopy had been peeled off

    A lovely 13cwt (just over 1/2 a ton in today's money) bell which they want to keep next to the church.

    Did anyone see that piece in the Echo the other night about Liverpool's best kept secrets? some fella had written a book on them.There was a bit about All Saints Church on Score Lane (the oldest church in Liverpool) which said "see if you can spot the Lepers Squint",through which the lepers,who lived in the valley below,would make their confessions to the parish priest whilst he and the congregation sat safely inside the building.It just shows you how some insignificant detail in a building can have so much meaning doesn't it?

    Exclamation St John's Baptist Church, Tuebrook

    I was driving past the church last week and was shocked to see that the vicarage at the back of the church is up for sale. It would be great to see it spruced up and turned into a great family home, but I have a funny feeling it's going to be turned into offices. I think the vicarage outdates the church, can anyone clarify?

    The link below is for the estate agency who are selling it:
