Liverpool, St James Church
Liverpool, St James Church
A Georgian town church in the Toxteth area of Liverpool, opposite the Anglican Cathedral. St James' was built in 1774 by Cuthbert Bisbrowne. The design is very simple, with a high, two-storey aisled nave, small chancel, and west tower, all of plain brick.
The interior is a traditional Georgian design, with a west gallery overlooking the nave, supported on cast iron pillars. This is thought to be the first use of cast iron columns in Liverpool.

The two levels of large windows in the aisle make the interior very light and spacious.

For several years St James's was redundant, and in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, but it is once more in use as a fully functional Anglican church.
