The Greenbank Drive Synagogue was built in 1936/7 and is the work of the notable Liverpool architect Sir Ernest Alfred Shennan. Most of his other work is also in Merseyside and comprises a diversity of building types. His inter-war designs included Westminster Banks; five cinemas including the listed Forum Cinema on Lime Street, Liverpool; restaurant interiors (The French Café and Arabic Café, both 1933, Liverpool); dance halls (The Grafton Rooms, Liverpool, 1934); hotels and office blocks. Greenbank Drive is Shennan’s only synagogue and is very different to the rest of his oeuvre up to that time which, apart from the banks, was distinctive art deco.

The first time we went was in the dark which was a tad silly as without lightpainting there was little to no point in going inside through a very small tight gap.

Upon gaining access through the same gap that was there we climbed down a ladder and went inside and up a lovely staircase and into one of the rooms.

This although heavily smashed up by kids and no doubt homeless/drug users was one of the nicest explores ive done.
