    Default St.Stephens/St.Patricks Court. Liverpool. Jan 2012.


    Explored with the bird.

    The original plan was to seek out the Victoria/Waterloo tunnel but after deciding that climbing down the Byrom Street cutting wasn't our best plan of action we scrapped it and headed for the derelict building opposite instead. :D

    Meaty history on this place is dire to be honest and all I can gather is that it was founded in 1792 and closed in 1937 after merging with other local churches.

    In 2006 (approx.) regeneration projects sprung up all around Liverpool and this area was one of them, however I can only presume that it got scrapped as this place has hardly been touched since.

    There is a big empty lot as part of the site and we seen planning pictures inside so presumed that they were using the old church as an office and would eventually knock it down/convert it along with the new build.







    It was really strange that the workmen had just left all their boots in there like they could return at any time.






























    Plans:


    We had company





    Didn't edit these pics like I have been doing...think I over did it on the last two reports.

    Very weird seeing the boots left there. One can imagine it happening 200 years ago, when the abandonment of works due to financial problems would have sent the workforce running lest they be harassed by bailiffs coming to sequester the property, but in a late 20th Century redevelopment? Most odd.
