A Brief History
.
St Nicholas is the Patron Saint of sailors and is regarded as the guardian of seamen proceeding on their voyages. Consequently the Parish Church of Liverpool is often known as the Sailors Church.
.
St Nicholas has been rebuilt several times since its foundation in medieval times. In the corner of the churchyard stood a coffee house in which shackles were fixed for the slave trader auctions during the eighteenth century.
.
The Garden
.
Until 1767 when a dock was built where the Liver Buildings now stand, at high tide, the River Mersey reached the wall which encloses the garden.
.
1849 saw the last burials. The Churchyard became a public garden in memory of James Harrison whose shipping company still has its offices facing the garden.
.
On 17 May 1892 a Deed of Faculty was granted for the laying out of the graveyard as an ‘Ornamental Ground’ by forming walks and making beds of shrubs or plants surrounded with turf. It was clearly indicated that the alterations should in no way interfere with the primary use of the Church as a place of worship.
