Prescot and its ‘Flat Iron’ building

The steeple of Prescot Parish Church just as the sun was going down.

Local history has always fascinated me and I often blog about it across Sefton and indeed Merseyside and West Lancs.

This piece – see link below – in the Liverpool Echo took my eye:-

Prescot’s connections with clocks is well known but this significant Lancashire town also has some interesting historic buildings too – my shot of its parish church heads up this posting.

One thought on “Prescot and its ‘Flat Iron’ building

  1. Ian Smith says:

    You could claim sanctuary in Prescot, it had it’s own court leet, which only finished in 1923. It was a walled town with many of those walls being internal and creating courts in the centre of town. A few still remain. Did you know the writer of the song and No1 hit internationally ‘ Chirpy chirpy cheep cheep ‘ was a Prescotian, Lally Stott former member of Denny Seyton and the Sabres?
