"St. Matthias' district church, Love-lane, in the Grecian style, was erected in 1834, at an expense of £3173; but, the building standing in the line of the Bury railway, it was taken down by the company, and a new church was erected in the early English style, with a square tower, and a spire rising to the height of 120 feet, from the designs of Arthur Hill Holme, Esq. The living is a perpetual curacy; patrons, the two Rectors; income, £90, with pew-rents. [This chapelry lay within the civil parish of St Nicholas Liverpool.]"
