    A bit of history on this small building. Originally a Welsh Chapel built in 1870 around the same time the historic Rock Park Development was built. In 1963 it was taken over for worship by the Baptist community, for which it served until 2005, when it closed down.

    A planning application was lodged in 2009 for the demolition of the church and the erection of a three storey block of nine flats [Wirral planning application reference OUT/09/06474], but this was refused as:


    So the future of this building is uncertain. Local estate agents, Sutton Kersh are selling the freehold on the building[PDF], but what will become of it is anyone's guess.

    Kevsy21 posted a report for this place about a year ago here, and the place seems to have been cleaned up internally since then but the false ceiling has gone. There is a basement but that's locked up tight.

    Visited with the Access Fairy, Mouse :p

    On with the pics:

    There are still a few bits left in the place and you can see how much work would be needed
