Photo: Lord Street’s historical glass verandahs a threat to life

Letter to the editor

Please can you warn shoppers to take great care when walking under Lord Street’s historical verandahs, today I noticed glass on the pavement, looked up to see a hole in glass verandah above. I would hate for someone to get it in the head. I have notified Sefton Council of this neglect.



In a recent statement Sefton Council said:

“Lord Street’s historical verandahs will be not be repaired and refurbished until the autumn”.

“While this is an exciting project, no enforcement work has actually begun on the verandas on Lord Street.

”This will not start until the Autumn in order to prevent obstructions being in place during the busy summer months along the popular shopping area.

“Our new Heritage at Risk Officer has 6 conservation areas at risk to address and the verandas will make up part of this wider programme.

”Further details of the work programme along Lord Street will be released in due course once a full survey has been carried out”.
