    Default Bixteth Street (Berrys Building)

    Not sure if this is the correct thread....however


    ADVERTISING




    A friend of mine four months ago moved into a new apartment with his partner into a converted warehouse in Bixteth Street, Liverpool, (Bixteth Street is just off Tithebarn street) The name of the warehouse is 'Berrys Building'.

    Since he moved in he has heard ghostly sounds in the bedroom and doors opening and shutting, in a nutshell he says its haunted. In the daylight hours he has explored the basement of the building , he says it looks like an old prison, he was informed that it was once a temporary female prison, although he questions his source of information I,ve never heard of this.

    Does anyone have any info on 'Berrys Building' in Bixteth Street and what it was used for ?

    It was an office block, built in 1864.
    It's Berey's Buildings.

    George.
    That was the subway under Exchange Station, connecting Prussia Street to Prussia Street.
    (Which went right through before the station was built.)

    Quite a lot of buildings incorporated warehouses, but Joseph Sharples says Berey's Building was an office block, which seems right considering the area it's in.
    (Near Old Hall Street.)

    Near enough, George.
    Maybrick's office was in Tithebarn Street.

    Knowsley Buildings, 15 Tithebarn Street. James Maybrick had his offices here. Demolished 1967 for Silkhouse Court.

    Thats just great, so what all you clever folk have come up with makes good reading, so can I say that 'Bereys' Building housed the office of James Maybrick. What I need to know is , what floor was his office on and is it the same floor as the apartment my mate lives in.

    Linda get yer coat on , your going ghost hunting

    As I said before, James Maybrick had his offices in Knowsley Buildings, which was demolished and replaced by Silkhouse Court, which is the new building next to Berey's Buildings.

    Off topic refresher on James Maybrick.

    He was christened on November 12, 1838 at St Peter's Church, Liverpool.
    He married on July 27, 1881 at St James, Piccadily, London.
    He died on May 11, 1889, and is interred at Anfield Cemetry, Liverpool.

    Most definitely Knowsley Buildings which was on the NW corner of Tithebarn st and Bixteth St and is now replaced with Silkhouse Court.

    Bereys buildings is on the corner of Bixteth st and George St.

    Could it be the old office of Jack the Dripper then.
    He had a plumbing business in that building I'm sure.

    Ok its back to the drawing board for you Mart,QS is right it was knowsley Building Maybrick had offices in and he is correct in saying the building was demolished in 1970 and the new building erected in 71/72 ie silkhouse court.

    Too close for comfort though
    basically your back to square one.
