    Default Foundation Stones

    That's a good idea, Jona.
    I know you've already posted a photo of St B's, but can we have the complete building as well as the foundation stone in this thread?
    I'll start snapping.

    And very slightly off the original theme but still connected with St Barnie's are pictures I've taken from the top of the tower:

    a: View towards All Hallows Church
    b: View towards Mossley Hill
    c: View towards the waterfront

    Nice photo Kev. Nice to see the name Toxteth proudly displayed. Don't the locals think this area is in Aigburth though

    It's opposite McDonalds at the Ullet Road end of Aigburth Road.

    I'd much rather say that McDonalds is opposite the former Toxteth Institute.

    For you ex-Pats, McDonalds was built on the site of Parkfield Motors.
