|Gateacre is associated with this Mock-Tudor style of building, the style of which harkens back to the Victorian ideal of the old English village.|
|The hexagonal memorial, paid for by the people of Gateacre, is full of symbolism, decorated with sea creatures, serpents and a Liver Bird. Built in 1883, it once housed a drinking fountain.|
|According to the Gateacre History Society, this beautiful building was once a bank and was designed by Walter Aubrey Thomas who went on to design the Royal Liver Building. The panels seem to depict quaint classical scenes.|
|The Unitarian Chapel, built in 1700. Like most of the buildings in Gateacre, local sand stone was used, the same sand stone that was later used to build the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool.|
