    Default TA Centre in Toxteth?

    There was an abandoned building not long ago on High Park street but is now flattened, I remember a Royal Engineers badge on the building so i thought it could have been a TA Centre. Does anyone know about this building?.

    Do you mean Upper Warwick Street?
    Just before Prince's Road, near Claribel Street?
    It was a TA Centre (a Drill Hall).
    It was called Crawford House, and in the 1980s, I got the impression it was a place where they did courses.
    I even heard that the Florence Institute from Mill Street moved there.
    Sorry to be rather vague.
    There is a new building on the site, but I don't know what it's supposed to be.

    The only one I know around here was the one in Warwick street. It was a training centre for the T.A.

    We use to call them the S.A.S (Saturday's and Sundays mob)

    Re: Crawford House
    A couple of years ago I heard of plans to refurbish the building, but keep the facade. I went up to take a picture, but nothing was left of the original building and the framework of the new building was being erected.
    I have one of those Council magazines that mentions the plans and an artists impression...I'll have to dig it out.
    I think the it ran Y.O.P. training schemes in its' later years.
    Didn't the cadets from the Irish Guards train in that building in the 1970s ?
    There is a website for the new building...

    Thanks Marky.
    I've not seen that before.
    It's a great reminder of what it used to look like, seeing that I never got round to taking photos.
    Is the new building in use yet?
    It all seems very quiet whenever I pass.
