Church Street Cross
The Church Street cross is a brass maltese cross which can be seen at the entrance to the passage through to School Lane, in front of what was HMV. The plaque stands at the position of the altar inside St. Peter’s Church, which used to stand on this site
, and which gave Church Street its name. The road has been significantly widened since the church was demolished, which is why it stands in the road today. St. Peter’s was built as the cathedral for Liverpool when it became a parish in 1699. It was demolished in 1922, once the present Anglican cathedral was ready to hold services.
