To highlight Liverpool’s important Georgian built heritage, two buildings in the town centre have been listed. The town houses, on Dale and York Streets, are rare survivals of the new types of retail space developing at the time, and are two of only a few examples seen outside London.
However, Wayne Colquhoun, founder of the Liverpool Preservation Trust, is generally pessimistic about the way Liverpool looks after its Georgian terraces.
Barclay’s Bank, Water Street, and 57 Parr Street are on a list of buildings with connections to slavery, whose listing details have been updated to better reflect their infamous links. Other candidates on the list include buildings in Bristol, Leeds, Cambridge and Hull. The list was announced by Margaret Hodge, and put together with the help of English Heritage.
