    Built as an elegant early nineteenth-century villa in large grounds with distant views, the old Kelton Convent in Liverpool was dramatically extended in the late-nineteenth century in the Gothic idiom. Institutionalisation has since been thorough but is not irreversible.

    Other Info From 2008
    "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 council’s 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.

    The Buildings are Grade 2 Listed and no doubt it will continue to rot away and crumble due to the cost of restoring it for other uses.

    This is a place we have checked a few times over the years but to no avail.Well done to TCCI for bringing to our attention again.
    Tbh the place is rotten especially the higher floors but good to finally get to look around it.

    Visited with Georgie,Sparkuk and the Young Un.

    On with the pics










    The floors have completely collapsed in parts
