Sounds ok to me, I have received edition 13 of Liverpool Vision's 'Development Update' today, there are 44 developments listed in the Ropewalks section and 12 developments listed for the L1/Baltic area, so plenty to look at.

I come on here and say this every so often, but its still worth saying.

Imagine, a Ropewalks stretching from Bold St to the dock road and taking in everything in between. The low density corpy houses gone. Just a seething mass of culture and bohemian style. Intricate little spaces and squares everywhere.

Certainly the place to watch and be in the future.

Nelson St. had a drink in the Nook, glad to see it has re-opened but it really does need redecorating inside.



Circle 109






Cornwallis St.




Duke St. this image is of the scheme on the demolished MSCP site, no signs of building work yet.




Fleet St.




Art House Sq.

Cheers Doug for another set of excellent photos. The Nook was a very interesting old pub (sawdust on the floor) then to the newest and most contemporary bar in Ropewalks in the regenerated St. Peters Church. You couldn`t pick two bars more different ,thats what makes this part of town very interesting ,the old and the new sitting side by side. Most enjoyable walkabout with you Doug and Awayo. Must do it again soon

Thanks Woody, yeah it was a bit of a contrast to say the least!! I know you liked Alma de Cuba, St. Peters, and I totally agree about the fact that this development saved the building but!! I would not describe myself as religious but standing there in place I did feel a bit uneasy supping lager with the altar bearing down. All those candles gave the place a bit of the Excorsist feel to it, I'm not sure if I would go back there?

Doug you ( and me ) would not go back ,at £3 pint
Apart from the "london prices" , I thought the whole church renovation had been brilliantly done. Yes, it had in a previousl life been a church with bodies in the cellar ( the beer was well chilled ) but to save such a interesting building a developer must find a viable future. Turning this ex-church into a bar was maybe the only way that the thousands spent on this structure would guarantee a return.
So Doug , I will gladly return for a When do you get payed ?????

Do they serve spirit's in there

Doug...Great pics above, that new development on the MSCP is excellent, can't wait until the whole of Duke street is restored and developed along it's entire lenght. I remember walking along Duke street in the 80s, what a difference now

That's a good idea to cover up a horribly decaying building, when are Frenson going to start on many of the buildings they are keeping in a derelict state around that area. They keep trying to put in applications to demolish for new build to see whether successful, but the council refuses until they come up with a more suitable proposal.

Admittedly the Chinese banners do look extremely good, and add much needed colour and interest to that area of Ropewalks. However that building has needed attention for decades. Adding copious amounts of corrugated iron and scaffold ultimately only drew attention to the building. Now although nice, the banners are simply wallpapering over the cracks, and hiding the problem - out of sight, out of mind perhaps?
