Great Altcar

 An 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.
