Church of St Cyprian, Liverpool.

Visited this one a while back with Host & Oldskool before everyman and his dog paid homage :rolleyes:

Designed by Culshaw & Summers in 1881, this landmark Liverpool church has suffered at the hands of the scousers since 2007 when it was last used as a local youth club

Featuring some of the best graffiti that even Banksy would aspire to and enough pidgeon poop & peeling paint to satisfy the Amateur Thrillseekers
:rolleyes:

Some intalect from English Heritage......

Looking towards the Alter, the scaffolding blocking the main detail...

Next up I decided to check out the clock tower, which with hindsight wasn't such a good idea, as the ladders came away from the masonry as I got halfway up and the timbers were rotten and just about supported the weight of my camera & tripod - (Found out the hard way after my good foot disappered) :D
