    We never did get to the bottom of the Georgian Buildings thing!

    Philip made a great point though.

    We need some new pics on here I think.

    Apart from the Hope Street/Rodney Street area, where are the otherGeorgian buildings? Are there any?

    The houses on Russell Street by Copperas Hill look Georgian. Captain Turner of the Lusitania lived on Russell Street in his youth.

    Georgian buildings are scattered about the city Rodney St & Upper Parli is where they are dense.

    There are loads on Shaw Street. I was involved in the project to rehabilitate the dilapidated ones opposite the Collegiate, by Hope College. The staircases inside and the ceilings are really beautiful and whilst they are worth doing, from the heritage point alone, the cost is astronomical. Understandably, you are not allowed to knock down a lot of the internal walls or the georgian window frames, so you have to partition wall a lot of stuff. Fitting central heating and stuff can be a nightmare. There is also the issues of the aesthetic design. A lot of these rehabilitated buildings have false front doors to give a united and "original" look to mask necessary rehabilitation work within. I always think it would be great to live in one but those high ceilings are very hard to heat. Most of these properties are sorted out with mixed grants from housing agencies, English Heritage etc so I dont think there is a lack of interest in them per se, its the huge undertaking and the maintenance costs are often prohibitive. But are they not a wonder and a
    massive enhancement to our city?

    I haven't seen this thread for a while.
    It's a shame that a lot of the pictures have gone.

    I think it's been said, but most of Duke Street/Seel Street/Slater Street is Georgian.
    The comparison with Bath is completely wrong.
    For instance, Bath was built for tourists, and wealthy ones at that, and it's a very small city, anyway.

    Church Mount off Marmaduke Street.

    We really are spoilt for choice as to what to photograph when you think that Edge Hill, Everton, Anfield and Wavertree have lots of this type of housing which is more synonymous with the likes of Canning,Toxteth, Childwall and Woolton.

    Can i ask some advice/opinions whist we re on this subject. There is an old pub near me and it is not in Liverpool. It is currently boarded up and on offer for lease. I get the feeling that sooner or later it will be knocked down and I think because of its unusual shape, it needs to be listed. I think it would make a tremendous apartment block or remain a pub etc. Can anyone give me any advice about how a building becomes listed and do you think from the attached photo that it is worth saving? Thanks in anticipation. Chris

    It's certainly an interesting shape and is a period building but as Philip will tell you, that counts for nothing as even a cinema with it's original 1910 facade in tact (or was) couldn't even get listed status and is one of only a handful in the country. You need to contact your local town hall who will have a dept who should deal with that and/or English heritage with some reason as to why it's of special interest.

    Thanks Ged. The fact that I live in a Victorian town with few redeeming features and the shape of the premises make them interesting and appealing to me. Maybe thats not enough but I'll buzz my councillor. If it was in the centre of London it would be worth a fortune. But then, so is a broom cupboard eh!

    Default Georgian Buildings in Liverpool

    Many of these buildings are in the "Georgian" style in that they were built outside the Georgian Period. Here's a few around Liverpool. Sadly a lot are in poor condition, especially those near the city centre, Duke St, Hanover St etc.

    Don't let anybody's bad experiences with English Heritage (including mine) put you off, Chris.
    Anybody can submit any building they like for Listing.

    Manchester is the place you want.

    I know i've posted some of these up before but they'll be buried on the 1980/90s thread somewhere. These are on Shaw Street and taken by me in 1990, (the block on the 3rd pic has gone) The last one taken by Joe Devine captures the 'unique' homeless hostel on the left (see the Acacia house thread) also the Ann Fowler womens refuge, part of the Radcliffe estate and St. Georges Heights.

    Shaw Street: Some of those buildings, to the left of the Gymnasium have been demolished recently. They were still standing when I passed a couple of months ago.

    This was it (June 2005).
    It was just the other side of College Lane.
    Sorry about the "Watermark".

    The finest surviving example of a Georgian Merchant house in Liverpool is not in L8 as one might think, but right opposite where I used to live in Trueman Street L3. (well - according to this plaque anyway)

    It is the former residence of brewer John Houghton who funded the building of Christ Church on Hunter Street.
