The much-loved St Luke’s – better known as the Bombed Out Church – will reopen its Gardens for the first time in nearly two years, since it closed for extensive repairs in September 2015.
Last week we reported on the re-opening of the Bombed Out Church. For those that don’t know, following a public consultation, a bidding process was launched and Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet approved the bid from community-based company, Bombed Out Church Ltd, to run the Grade II* listed church for the next thirty years. St. Luke’s Church, which can be viewed from Bold Street, aptly stands bold at the top of the street after being badly damaged during the Liverpool blitz in 1941. It now stands as a memorial to those who lost their lives.
Following the news, which was met with applause from all over the world, an urban explorer called Terry Ocallaghan, armed with a camera took a look around to see and appreciate the views and details of the beloved building ahead of the grand opening. Just to warn you, he did have permission and is a professional. Don’t attempt to climb. Enjoy!
