agricultural parish, Great Altcar extends for several miles along
the north side of the river Alt.
The village's most interesting building is the parish church, St
Michael and All Angels, built in 1879 by the Earl of Sefton.
It is a charming 'black and white' structure with massive
timbers and, at the west end, stout posts form an arch, support and
bell turret. In the churchyard are a pedestal font and a stoup
which are from earlier churches on the same site.
