Chapel History[edit | edit source]

LIVERPOOL (St Anne), Great Richmond-street, was erected in 1772. St Anne's was built as a chapel of ease and lay within the ancient parish boundaries of St Nicholas, Liverpool. It is a neat building of brick, in the early English style, with a square tower crowned by pinnacles; the east window is of painted glass.[1]
