    Here's a link to the church's somewhat out of date web site. It has a good photo of the internal structural ironwork

    http://www.neighbourhoodservices.com/stgeorgeschurch/

    The church has published its own history. You might care to contact the vicar to purchase a copy. It has a lot of information about the building of the church plus several photos.

    Another church built around the same time is St Michael in the Hamlet, Toxteth Park, Liverpool. This has a greater use of cast iron in the structure.

    Thanks for them Mandy, I,ve saved the first one. My dad and Auntie Lil had their service from here before they were laid to rest. Mind you, you can hardly say my dad is" laid to rest" floating in the Mersey, can you?

    Look at the Churches

    - St. Michaels in the Hamlet (built by the same man who built St George's)
    - St James' Church

    Both of iron construction.

    Also look at Oriel Chambers in Water St in Liverpool (the world's first iron framed glass curtain walled building (1864) and 16 Cook St, similar, two years later. Most modern buildings are based on the construction methods of these two buildings.

    16 Cook St is my favourite building of any anywhere. A magic little building that even has a cantilevered encased in glass, spiral staircase at the back (out of view for the public).

    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
