A listed pub https://britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/101257325-seaforth-arms-hotel-linacre-ward built in the Edwardian Baroque style common to a lot buildings of that era in Liverpool.

A shopkeeper opposite said it had closed several years ago. This was one I had been checking occasionally, probably for about 18 months, until one day a trail of debris and bent tools indicated that the inevitable had occurred.

At that stage whoever broke in hadn’t wrecked the place - just rifled through drawers and cupboards.

Asking around, another local told me he had informed the council, several times, of the break-in but they did nothing, and for the next month the building remained wide open, with a fire on the first floor.

I haven’t been back inside but the last time I was passing I noticed it had finally been secured - I hope there hasn’t been too much damage since it is/was above average for a pub.









Rather pink because of the sun shining through red curtains.
























On the left a little lift.















I should have looked at this more closely, but it seems like the turret has an extendable flagpole.

Amazing, what a place! Quite sad it seems to have survived quite intact and now sits derelict. Any chance of it re-opening?

Note the same roundal in the window as at the Royal Castle.

Extendable flagpole...? Yes, you certainly should have had a closer look!!

Don't see why not - there was some evidence of renovation going on - filler etc. - and while the fire and rescue service had evidently attended the fire, judging by the red tape, it doesn't seem to have been too serious.
