Arrow Kelton Convent - Liverpool - November 2012 - - 15-11-2012, 00:13

some info from a daily post article dated 2008.....


"Around £7.5m is to be spent to restore a derelict former convent in South Liverpool into luxury apartments.

The former Kelton Convent, Woodlands Road, Aigburth, will be converted into 14 apartments and 26 new flats will also be built in two new wings in the grounds to help pay for the restoration of the existing grade II listed buildings.

Liverpool councilís planning committee heard yesterday that without the new flats the restoration would not be possible as the work will cost £7.5m but the apartments will sell for less than £5m.

Five nearby residents wrote to the council to oppose the scheme for a variety of reasons which included protests about the increase in traffic in the area and loss of amenity.

Architect Richard Cass told the committee that the building would be restored to its former glory."


had this one on the list for a while now and after having a fail here 2 years ago it got left on the back burner and forgot about.

after seeing a recent report by tcci it was now time to go back and take a look ourselves.......cheers for bringing it to my attention you ken livingstone lookalike

a bit trashed in parts but i quite liked it ,the best part was finding an old paper from 1982 with the headline "A KING"......the birth of prince william

visited with kevsy21/jimmy carr/sparkuk.
