    Default Hockenhall Alley, off Dale Street [Fisherman's Cottage]

    Dec 22 2008 by Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo

    Rare city house saved

    A RARE surviving city centre home from 200 years ago has been given listed building protection.

    The ?modest? three-storey building in Hockenhall Alley, off Dale Street, is one of three new sites to be given Grade II listed status by the Government.

    Heritage chiefs described it as a ?rare and important survival of an exceptionally modest working class dwelling that illustrates the inner city living conditions of some of the poorest members of late 18th and early 19th century society?.

    Hockenhall Alley was originally called Molyneaux Weint and number 10 is believed to be the only surviving part of a short row of 18th century houses at the south east end.

    It was once used as a chemist shop but has been empty for many years.

    The Dickensian building, which only has one small room on each floor, still has original features including a narrow timber winding staircase, a plank and batten door and lath and plaster ceilings.

    Two brick-built warehouses, at 13 and 15 North Street, off Dale Street and close to the Birkenhead tunnel entrance, have also been Grade II listed.

    They were both described as ?a good example of a relatively small warehouse built at a time of Liverpool?s ascendance to a port of international significance? with original timber floors, cast iron columns and doors and many of their original cast iron window and door shutters.

    Liverpool?s executive member for heritage and the environment Berni Turner said: ?The building in Hockenhall Alley is known locally as the Fisherman's Cottage. It?s a one-up, one-down building from the end of the eighteenth century and looks like something out of a Charles Dickens novel.

    ?It?s a fascinating and quirky survivor from that time and we are delighted it has been listed. The other listed buildings are important parts of the World Heritage Site and show the variety of our architectural legacy. Their listing shows the determination of the council to ensure important buildings are preserved.?

    Well done the heritage chiefs. Great post Kev, my old stomping ground as I lived the next street down from North St for 13 years.

    Went there yesterday on my way for a cheey few in the Ship and Mitre.

    The alley is tiny and it was half full of scaffolding and half full of parked vans, so there was little space for me to get a good shot, also as it was getting a bit late the light levels were terrible and having no tripod some of the shots are not as crisp as i'd like.

    Anyway, here we go, Number 10, Hockenhall Alley
