    Default Liverpool Tower Blocks

    Sadly, this tower block was knocked down a couple of years back. Cracking views from the roof.

    Thanks Kev.
    Cheers Ged, much appreciated.
    Here's an oldie of the first Beetham being built viewed from the Corinth. Amazing the changes near the waterfront over the past 4 years.

    I don't think the one by Lodge Lane is quite the height of Corinth, but may still be worth a look. Another one near there had scaffolding to the roof recently but I didn't notice until they'd started taking it down.

    Also, Corinth Tower was on a much higher elevation. Does anyone recall St George's Heights? Jeez! Wish I had the chance to take some pics from that roof.

    Very cool views. My sister used to live in one of those towers there but I never got the chance to visit. Doh

    Hi
    I remember it well. I worked as a radio engineer for Pye for 20 odd years
    and we had radio gear on the top of most high rise flats, 23 floors. On
    St Georges we had a fibre glass hut on the roof with the radio stuff in. It
    was fun when the hut was put on the roof with a crane which had a 230 ft
    jib. Went to most high rises, Corinth, the 3 in Sheil Road , St Georges and what was the one down by Crown St.

    Which one was by Crown Street, the one near the top of Smithdown? Never realised there were three in Sheil Road. When I moved down there, only one was left. Seems ages now since that one was pulled down...

    The smaller one was Milner House, named after the safe company that previously occupied the site.
