    Default Venmore Street Anfield

    Does anyone know who owns the houses in Venmore Street,I used to live there and visited recently what a sorry state ,mostly boarded up.
    I gather they are due to be demolished,does anyone know when.
    I remember as kids on match day,we used to mind cars
    I was born in no 63. 1 of 13 kids living in only 3 bedrooms I went to Our Lady's
    school in Northumberland Terrace,OR was it St Domingo Vale,
    Is it Still there? probably not,
    I can't seem to find any pics of either been looking for ages been on all the sites,
    see ya later x

    Hiya Val
    Our Lady's school is still in Northumberland Terrace but it is a new school.
    the old one was demolished early 1970's
    there is a photo in Liverpool Our City Our Heritage but it is very small,I will try to scan it tomorrow for you

    Hi Val
    I went up venmore street the other day before the match its v sad. I expect they will knock them down at the end of this season. They are supposed to be making a boulevard up to the new stadium. My nan and grandad Elsie and Bill used to live in 66, and my dad is Bill Thompson and his sister Hilary, their son and daughter. Whats your surname ? My uncle was Sid Sheldrake and Beattie who used to live next door to you. I found your email as I was searching to see if I could find any pictures of venmore street as it used to be. If you find any let me know

    It is due for demolition as part of the regeneration of the Anfield Breckfield area, but some still live there. The council have been buying back properties for ages.
