St Michael in the Hamlet is a Grade I Listed building in south Liverpool, noted for the extensive use of cast iron in its construction and external decoration.
The exterior is Gothic Revival, Perpendicular in design with spectacular east window tracery. The church was part of the Cast Iron Shore – an area on the Mersey full of iron works, which was used in buildings. Even the shore was stained red with iron. The cast iron houses are now gone, but the church remains, a vital part of a Conservation Area.
Added in 1919, the tower clock commemorates the fallen of the First World War, as does a stained glass window by local artist Gustav Hiller. A monument commemorates Jeremiah Horrox (1618-41), known as the Father of Modern Astronomy.
