St Hildeburgh's Parish Church, Hoylake

#4 of 6 in Things to do in Hoylake
St Hildeburgh's Church is in Stanley Road, Hoylake, Wirral, Merseyside, England. It is an active Anglican church in the deanery of Wirral, North, the archdeaconry of Chester and the diocese of Chester. The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.
During the 1890s the population of Hoylake was growing and new church was needed. To satisfy this need St Hildehburgh's Church was built in 1897–99. It was designed by Edmund Kirby. The church was dedicated to Saint Hildeburgh. At the time that St Hildeburgh's was built the parish church of Hoylake was Holy Trinity Church, but this was closed in 1974, and St Hildeburgh's then became the town's parish church.
ExteriorThe church is constructed in red brick and terracotta with tiled roofs. Its plan consists of a five-bay nave with a clerestory, north and south aisles under lean-to roofs, a chancel with a north organ loft and vestry, a south chapel, a northwest porch, and a west baptistry. The porch is timber-framed on a brick base. Along the sides of the aisles are alternating paired and triple lancet windows. The windows along the clerestory are octofoils. At the west end are gabled buttresses that rise above the level of the roof. In the baptistry are three square windows, four lancets, and an octofoil at the top. The east window consists of a central cross flanked by quatrefoils. The chapel has a caned end, lancet windows, and a bell in an iron frame.
