    Default Gold Cross - Pavement, Church Street

    I went on a history walk, related to the slave trade, in the Liverpool today and one of the things that was discussed was the original church, St Peter's, which was in Church Street - well gone of course. This led to a discussion about the small gold cross - which I remember very well, and so did others so:

    Does anyone know what's happened to the small gold cross that was in the pavement outside the old Woolies building in Church Street? The cross, I believe, was a memorial for the original church, knocked down for road widening.

    I hope that it hasn't been lost in all the renovations - because it's a part of our city's history and I always remember it being there.

    I'd be grateful for any news on this.

    Thanks!

    I've mentioned this in a few threads as my gt grandparents married in St Peter's, Church St. as far as I'm aware it's still behind the hoardings that are up for the renovations to Top Shop etc.

    I'm actually waiting to hear back from an inquiry I made to Grosvenor a few days ago about the cross. as soon as I get a reply I'll post it up.

    here's part of the wedding certificate showing the church

    Thanks for replying - that picture and certificate are brilliant. Will show them to the person who lead the walk.

    Will wait for those hoardings to come down and check for the cross and will be very interested in what the developers reply.

    Thanks again.

    I suppose it's possible that the original pavement, complete with cross, is still beneath the new paving... hopefully!

    Here's a link to a thread from 2007...

    It's still there and visible now that Keys Court has opened.
    It's brass, not gold, and has suffered some damage.
