Bootle - St Michael's Church. Pic 0949.

 

The parish Church of St Michael and All Angels (parts of which date back to Norman times) was originally an oblong building which was extended in 1837. The tower was completed in 1882. Bootle was granted a market charter in 1347, and was said to be the smallest market town in England.

 

The stained glass windows are worth looking at. The east window is by John Hardman, And the chancel north window by Henry Holiday (1899).

 

In the churchyard is the village cross, by Paley and Austin (1897).

 

A comprehensive Church booklet gives details of the history and the content of the Church.
