    Exclamation Kelton Convent, Woodlands Road, Aigburth

    AROUND £7.5m is to be spent to restore a derelict former convent in South Liverpool into luxury apartments.

    The former Kelton Convent, Woodlands Road, Aigburth, will be converted into 14 apartments and 26 new flats will also be built in two new wings in the grounds to help pay for the restoration of the existing grade II listed buildings.

    Liverpool councilís planning committee heard yesterday that without the new flats the restoration would not be possible as the work will cost £7.5m but the apartments will sell for less than £5m.

    Five nearby residents wrote to the council to oppose the scheme for a variety of reasons which included protests about the increase in traffic in the area and loss of amenity.

    Architect Richard Cass told the committee that the building would be restored to its former glory.

    Hope this one goes ahead. It's a lovely building though I never did like the scale of massive Victorian extension in relation to the earlier early 19th C building. The last owners were the Sing stockbroker family who moved out in I think the late 19th or early 20th C. It then became a home for unmarried mothers run by the RC Church. The nuns having previously moved from a large house in the Dingle The extra flats will pale into insignificance compared to the massive amount of social housing already built on the grounds of Kelton

    Some cracking huge buildings around that area and further up on Mossley Hill Road. Probably better they get turned into flats that fall into wrack and ruin I suppose.

    Here's a few photos. The large Kelton house seems to be derelict but extension building work is still going on in the grounds on smaller buildings. The entrance lodge is in private ownership and in excellent condition.
