In "Liverpool 800" (2006), edited by John Belchem (p354), it says:
(St Andrews Church) "...has recently been rescued through compulsory purchase".
Don't worry - that building is going on my 'Liverpool Buildings at Risk' website when I've got a mo. Why aren't there enough hours in the day!
I would like to apologise to Missinformed for the way I spoke to Her Yesterday,I Dont normally talk to women like that and I wouldn't like anyone Talking to my Wife like that.It was out of order and its been playing on my mind.
Sorry Girl and Good luck..
And No..I haven't been on the Guinness...
The lastest I heard was that legal proceedings were suspended as the owner stated he had sold the property to his father...the funny thing is his father has the same name, so this has confused the Councils' legal team.
I'm not sure if it was concerned with a C.P.O. or an Urgent Works Notice. This was only recently, so some information may still be on the internet...Echo site, maybe.
It's all very interesting, but rather depressing.
All it seems to say about each building is: "Nothing is going to happen at the moment".
The Florrie for instance - work will not start until December.
Why can't they put a roof on it? They've got enough money!
At least a new roof was put on the Scandinavian Hotel.
Guys, has it ever been suggested that mckenzie and co, including pryramid, should be moved and reenterred, in a more suitable resting place? as previously stated i dont feel these tombs, will figure in developers plans, if / when the ball rolls, ps ,from another location i think this should be done for williamson to., or am i talking rubbish?

I am at this time writing a Bicentennial History of the St. Andrew's Society of Baltimore, founded in 1806, so I am knee deep in Scotsmen in kilts. I should think there should be some interest among such Scottish societies in seeing that the chapel, garden, and graveyard, are restored and properly maintained.
Hiya Chris, would be great to see the place restored, however on close inspection, it just looks to far gone, get yer kilt on when your over and we can protest to the powers that be,dressed as highlanders
