Church of St James, St James' Place - Liverpool

Nave and west tower built between 1774-5. Notable for its early use of cast iron columns. Transferred from the Churches Conservation Trust to a newly established parish which is actively working to secure the repair and re-use of the church. Major roof repairs, supported by a Historic England grant, are complete. Discussions are ongoing regarding proposals to adapt the building to provide facilities for both the congregation and the community.
