    You're not the sort of man one meets every day, John. I enjoyed reading that. Every so often one will actually marry you, but, yes, only out of a sense of duty. That's women for you though.

    It's the same building. Beetham bought the building off Walton Group and did it up, renaming it Beetham House. It was derelict and had suffered a fire before Beetham renovated it, if I remember...

    I like the loopy, circular ferry idea.

    Also in the C19th, the Russians tried building warships the same shape. The problem was that when they fired their guns, unless they were aligned perfectly...

    Hello Phillip, are you really asking what a churchyard is?

    Phredd, It called Church Yard, because it's on the site of a bleedin' church yard; not the church but its grave yard.

    I can't think of a reason to name a new street any better than that it alludes...

    I don't think it was the big guy himself. But, what's the problem?

    It's on the site of old St Peter's church yard. It's a good name.

    It's a municipal signpost, so, yes, it's a LB. I liked the 80s/90s vintage signposts, those with a Liver Bird on top. However, the new, more modern-looking signposts in town are rather smart as well.

    The Radisson SAS is a four star (I've heard it described as "four star deluxe", whatever that means, I suspect that its a cop out aimed to get away with the fact that an actual five star hotel was...

    The MSCP is no beauty. However, it is not made of bare concrete. The columns are clad with facing panels and the balconies around each parking floor are painted metal.

    I agree with you about...

    How old is StMary's church in Walton. There's been a church on that site for 950 years or so. Is the existing building a relatively recent replacement?

    That makes more sense, Kev. I'm sure I'd read somewhere that the Toxteth Chapel was the oldest blg in Liverpool, but it can't be. Come to think of it, Speke Hall must be much older too.

    I wonder if there's any medieval undercrofts lurking underneath the streets.

    The oldest surviving building in Liverpool is the Ancient Chapel of Toxteth isn't it, a mere early C17th whippersnapper?
