    I doubt it - you'd have to go quite far down if anythings survived the constant building / bombing of recent years.

    It would be nice if they tunred up something for the brithday celebrations.

    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?

    The West Derby Courthouse is older I think.

    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.

    Maybes, the chapel in Toxteth is the oldest building in central Liverpool (pushing it a bit, I know) or something.

    1688 the Chapel was built. Stanlaw Grange in Aigburth dates back to 1291 and still exists as two houses.
