A bit of history from the liverpool echo 2008

FORMER labourers’ homes almost 100 years old could be converted to flats.

Eldon Grove labourers dwellings in Vauxhall’s Eldonian Village have lain derelict for years.

But they are now being marketed by Liverpool property firm Edward Symmons with planning permission for 48 flats and 50 car parking spaces.

They are owned by the city council and, despite being in the hands of a developer who cannot be named due to confidentiality reasons, Edward Symmons has been named as Law of Property Act (LVA) Receiver with instructions to sell the historic site that was given grade II-listed status in 1993.

To the front of the block is the former Bevington Street Recreation Ground which could provide scope for further development, subject to the necessary planning consents.

They are also embarked on building 8 mock Tudor houses on the old asphalt playground that fronts Eldon Grove and separates it from Bevington Street. (from 2002)

recent news surrounding eldon grove

http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/live...bjectid=28079565&siteid=100252-name_page.html

i have to say after stepping out of the car at bevington street was like stepping back in time ,the whole street which faces eldon grove is a time capsule.

at the east end you have on display (and also listed) a lovely lamp post with drinking fountian ,theres also one inside at the west end but you have to be behind the fence to see it close up Installed around 1911, they originally had two drinking fountains in the square plinth.

cheers for http://www.yoliverpool.com/ for putting me onto this one :thumb

explored with kevsy21 and the cat crept in

normally housing blocks or tenements dont really float my boat but this im sure youll agree is a bit special and deffo needs saving but after 2 fires im not sure how much more this place can take until its gone and lost forever.
