    They wouldn't do this if it was a more 'affluent' part of the city

    I wonder if they'd demolish any of Wooton villages old houses !! ??

    these sandstone houses are a part of Anfield and I can't understand why they have done this. The buildings are not structually unsound and they could be renovated accordingly.

    Well, it's too late now. They are going to build some modern 'apartments' -- FLATS they mean !

    Disgusting!!! It makes me heartsick whenever something like this happens.

    Lindy, thanks also for saying you would have taken a pic of my old house on Anfield Road prior to it being demolished if you'd have known I had lived there. I appreciate that. I am not certain of the address but it was on Anfield Road opposite LFC's Anfield Road stand (of course) but closer (I think) to the Main stand than the Kemlyn Road stand though I might be wrong.

    I was told that there was originally a bigger row of these sandstone houses - (probably where the Co-Op funeral place is now).

    Opposite is Holy Trinity church, Breck rd. the church is built in the same red brick.
    I am told that anything pre 1840 is automatically listed Grade 2, so I don't know why these houses have been ignored.
    The one remaining block is still in it's original state, but the other one could have been renovated by having all that horrible white plaster removed and for the sandstone to be restored.

    English Heritage can only List buildings if they know they exist.

    BTW.
    I'm going to the Town Hall on Tuesday to object to the proposed demolition of the former Bedford Cinema in Walton.
    Wish me luck.

    Default too bad

    I,m sorry that they have gone too. I hope who sanction them to be demolished has four boils up his bum for three years. That should sort him, or her, out.

    I lived opposite to those, or that building and will miss them next time I go up there, which should be very soon, if I can find my walking stick that is.

    Sorry Lindy, I commiserate with you, does this create a new brickfields? (private joke)

    Philip, I do wish you luck regarding Bedford rd.
    There was a letter about the cinema in the paper this week - might have been in the Echo or the free paper, I can't remember where I read it, the person mentioned that there is a dome still intact, and they reckon that the building could be restored to some of it's former glory.
    I do hope this happens.



    What is so sad about the Breck rd sandstone houses, is that they will be replaced by some cheap flats.

    I saw a similar thing happen down Townsend lane; an old building which was formerly a little school or chapel ( I'm not exactly sure which it was, but I know that it existed late 1800's or very early 1900's) - they demolished it and have built horrible flats which were advertised as 'apartments' ( which makes me smile!) - the flats were built very recently, approx 2 years ago, if that.
    They were victim of anti-social behaviour and vandalism, they are now an eyesore already - - I will take a photo next time I am passing.

    To think that they took away that old building, which was a little local landmark - to put rubbish in it's place.
    Well, I can see the same thing happening by the Cabbage Hall.

    That photee Lindy of the flats, they want more that their ballcocks seen too. I,d rather have had the little chapel with the woodworker in it anyday, saints preserve us. (as they say in Scottie)

    There is no need for these overflows and they should be removed. From Jan 2001, overflows can be integrated into the toilets, which means it overflows down the toilet. A new siphon, costing 12 is all that is needed.

    No, not a Heinz advert...

    According to Radio Merseyside news, bricks have fallen from a building on Lower Breck Road.

    Who has been round Arkles Lane recently??? What have the council done to a road that used to be quite attractive??? I was along there this evening and can I just say, it hasn't been improved one iota.

    It wasn't broke...so who decided to try and fix it?

    Jack Allison would of been manager in the 60's in the Arkles , my family may know your Mum if she was a barmaid then.

    Ambrose Grove, L6.

    This is an interesting road as it is cobbled and has a varied mixture of house styles, ie; an old Victorian sandstone house, large terraced houses and some semi-detached with gardens, also some 'modern' - probably 1960's flats.


    Edit.
    I just added another pic. Had another look today and noticed I'd overlooked another sandstone house tucked aside the newer flats.
