West Derby – St Timothy

Rockwell Road, West Derby, Liverpool 12

This is a modest brick church built to serve a new housing estate. Its principal interest lies in its resemblance to military buildings.

Opened in 1956, serving a new housing estate.

The church consists of a single volume and resembles an aircraft hangar in its general appearance, with a curved overall roof covered in copper.  The external walls are of red brick; the west wall is blind, with a large cross under a projecting canopy; the side elevations are divided into seven bays by raking brick buttresses, with large rectangular windows at the wall head filling the full width of each bay.

The interior has bare brick walls and a metal roof with exposed struts. The building is seated with chairs. There are no fittings of interest.
