    Default Lost Churches of Liverpool

    Back in 2001, I published The Churches of Liverpool. Written by David Lewis, it was a record of many of the city’s churches, past and present. I was not completely happy about the book; it was in the early days of digital photography and some of the images were bitmapped but, more inexcusably, the book [...]

    Default Lost Churches (2)

    William and George Audsley have not been treated well in Liverpool. Amongst the most respected Victorian church architects, their two remaining Liverpool churches, Christ Church in Kensington and the Welsh Presbyterian Church in Princes Road, are in shocking condition. Possibly their finest work was St Margaret on the corner of Belmont Road and West Derby [...]

    Don't forget they also designed the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Chapel in Chapel Rd, Garston. This still stands, externally largely unaltered though now in private ownership.

    Default Lost Churches (3)

    The rapid expansion of Liverpool in the late 18th and early 19th century saw the wealthier merchants and professionals move westwards from the city centre, taking possession of the new housing being built around Rodney Street. Naturally, where there were people, there were churches and in a very small area (probably little more than a [...]

    "The rapid expansion of Liverpool in the late 18th and early 19th century saw the wealthier merchants and professionals move westwards from the city centre. . . ."

    Hello Colin

    Shouldn't that be eastward? If it was westward it would be to Birkenhead and the Wirral wouldn't it?

    Great stuff once again Colin. Are those houses to the left of the Myrtle Street church still there in the form of bistros?

    Hi Chris. A moment of madness. Of course it is eastwards - I've just changed it,

    They are great photos, and I'm enjoying them.

    The Annals from Gore's Directory says the Myrtle Street Baptist Chapel opened on 10 January 1844.
    I've no information on the architect.

    The Catholic Apostolic Church/Church of the Holy Apostles commenced building in 1840 and wasn't completed until 1856.
    In 1843 it was said that the choir would open (as a temporary church) at the end of that year, and that the nave and tower were yet to be built.
    The congregation, at that time, met in Pilgrim Street.
