The Old Kennels is a building that has in recent years fallen into disrepair. The building has a rich history and is important to the local community as part of the park which previously belonged to the late Earl of Sefton who died in 1972, and in 1980 following the death of Lady Sefton the park was bequeathed to the people of Liverpool. The kennels were built in the 1870s and are a Grade II listed building.They were designed by the Chester architect John Douglas for the 4th Earl of Sefton. The aspiration is to restore the building to its former glory and turn it into a Heritage and Information Centre, staffed solely by volunteers. We want to provide a place within the park for people to meet, rest and chat providing benches, seating and refreshments and information.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Because without the CPVG the building would fall into total disrepair and would be lost. It is a very important and historic building. It will also provide a much needed resource in the park that currently doesnt have a place for visitors to rest and meet
