    Arrow Crosshall Street Chapel

    built in 1880 as Victoria Calvanistic Methodist Church but was sold to Liverpool Corporation in 1920.

    1878: Foundation stone of a new Welsh Calvanistic chapel in Crosshall street, laid by John ROBERT'S esq M.P. in lieu of Pall mall chapel which was built in 1787 and taken down for railway extension Nov 27


    ADVERTISING




    the congregation moved there from their first chapel in Pall Mall. It was called the Victoria Chapel after the success of the Sankey & Moody evangelistic campaign held in 1875 in a large tent on Crosshall street called Victoria Hall.

    current status on the sale of this place

    Size: 2163 - 11983 sq ft
    Price Guide: 1,500,000.00
    The Chapel is a development opportunity for conversion into a boutique hotel, offices, restaurant or residential apartments. The existing buildings facade is Grade II listed and contains 12,283 sq ft spread across four floors.

    was hoping for more with this place tbh ,its well partitioned with little remaining of its former use as a chapel,the ceilings are caving in ,the floors are rotted , the best part being the staircase at the front.

    explored with 4737carlin ,wimr and the mule

    Nice place from the outside but it looks a mess on the inside as of now. I hope the plans to save the building to put it to good use come about.

    Fascinating. It looks like it is made of the same stone as the Welsh church on Princes Road. I hope they can save it but it looks to be in a very bad way.

    There's one on Great Crosshall st as well, the old Sunday school to St Johns church that was in St Johns Gardens up until the late 1800s. It is to become St. Patrick's court - eventually.
