    Default Was This a Church????

    I was having a wander round,down by Canada dock,and noticed this"tower" in Brunswick place,which is just opposite! I've passed it many times,but on giving it some attention,I wondered what it was?
    It's got the remains of a lightning conductor running down the side,so I presume it was the tallest building in the vicinity,at one time,and looking at the stonework,it seemed more ornate,and older,than the buildings next to it (what's left of them!) and just looks odd!
    So,as I know the area was much more populated,in years gone by,I wondered if it was once a church,and if it had been incorporated into the surrounding warehouses? Probably not,but does anyone know anything about it?

    This is all a wee bit much for the likes of me, with (sm)all my local knowledge.

    I did come across this though...

    This contains one of - if not the biggest write up's of Joseph Williamson by James Stonehouse in 1846, just 6 years after Williamson died.

    But I would say it was the base of a Chimney. If you look at the Pearson's of Liverpool (Edge Hill) one - it's nearly the same.
