Church Project: St Hilary’s Wallasey

This is my second Church Project and this week it’s St Hilary’s in Wallasey which is the oldest church in Wallasey, there’s been six different church buildings and there has been a church on this site since around 900AD. When it’s said the Vikings named the area Walea, ‘the village with the church on the island of the foreigners’.

Above is a panoramic view from the steps of St Hilary’s and my first attempt at producing a panoramic photograph. It’s not a great example, but not bad for a first attempt!

This one is the sixth building built around 1860. There’s also a separate tower from an earlier church building that burnt down. The tower dates from medieval times.

As you can see this site has a wealth of local history attached to it which is very interesting, and that appeals to me.
