    Default Everton Library - Feb 19


    One we've been checking for a while, and although the access point hadn't changed at all since our previous visits, we decided to wing it and attempt something a little more risky, and it paid off...



    Everton Library







    Concise history from wikipedia:

    Everton Library is a disused library building in Everton Brow, Liverpool. Designed by architect & Liverpool City Surveyor Thomas Shelmerdine and constructed in 1896, it remained in use as a library until 1999. It was used by community groups for a few years but as of 2018 it has been derelict for 12 years. There are plans in progress to convert the building for use as an arts, culture, heritage and enterprise centre.



    We are fascinated by the more decayed structures, and this one ticked the box. Some of the architecture inside reminded me of the library section at St Josephs Seminary. It was just before we left that we noticed the main hall had lit up with a golden glow, with the sun setting directly outside the window at the far end. This was one of those amazing spectacles you can only get through urbex.



































    The main hall











    And then...











    Finally, some potential plans for the structure. Would be amazing if it ever looked like this:







    Here you can find the link for my documentary styled video of this site. We cover the past, present and future of the library through cinematics and narration:







    Thanks for reading :)

    I remember looking at this years ago, not sure why I never did the place back then.
    When you are feeling down ~open the window at 3am and shout FOOK It~ does not help, but peeves the
    neighbours off *Graham B*

    A nice building indoors but needs a lot of work. Nice shot of the main hall. A one off.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
