    info from wikipedia

    The Welsh Presbyterian Church in Liverpool, also known as the Welsh Catheral or Toxteth Cathedral, is a ruined church, located on Princes Road in the Princes Park area of Toxteth, Liverpool. In spite of its nicknames, it is not an actual cathedral and never was.

    The building was designed by the Audsley Brothers and was opened in 1868.

    At 61 metres (200 ft),it was the tallest building in Liverpool at the time.

    The Welsh Presbyterian Church is a Grade II listed building, meaning it has historical significance and may not normally be demolished. Various proposals to renovate the structure have been made over the years, and some remain under consideration.

    originally visited this place with kevsy21 and sparkuk,and it was pretty much how i had imagined it from seeing various pictures....a shell and nothing more.

    various work had been done on the roof to try and protect this church from the elements but no avail.

    on our visit we found the tower which had been previously sealed was now doable ....as me, sparkuk and kevsy21 stood at the foot of the ladder upwards discussing how safe the very rusty ladder wasnt lol,and who should try it first....anyway non of us got all the way up so we left it at that.


    in the week i was chatting to tcci about the church,him being inside there a while back i mentioned the tower looked doable but the way up looked dodgy....he kindly volunteered to go back with me and try the ladder.....:crazy

    it didnt go that far up ,all of the remaining levels in the tower seemed to have been taken out ,which was a shame as i wanted to get some high shots overlooking princess avenue, but it was till good to get up and see what we seen.

    visited with kevsy21/sparkuk and later on with tcci

    i was recently sent a picture of what i used to look like and decided to take it along with me to line it up with what it looks like now....after a few attempts in the -2 cold this was my best shot....its not perfect im afraid, but gives you a sense of what is used to look like.
