The Week in Liverpool

Liverpool Landscapes was a blog charting new discoveries, news and developments affecting Liverpool's historic environment. It was regularly updated between 2007 and 2016.

Liverpool Landscape has now been retired, and most of the less time-dependent articles moved to Historic Liverpool.

After last weekend’s exciting Heritage Open Days, there’s been a bit of a lull in history-related things this week. However, in traditional web log style, here are a couple of links you’ll find interesting:

  • Capital or Culture: you decide – “A new documentary is being shot in the city – and city creatives are invited to take part. The question: what did the Capital of Culture ever do for you?” (from the wonderful Seven Streets blog);
  • Liverpool Adverts: a couple of adverts you may or may not have noticed were filmed in Liverpool. My biggest surprise – that class Coca Cola ad was filmed in St. George’s Hall! (also from Severn Streest, with contributions).
  • Memorial garden marks burial site of Williamson Tunnels creator – a memorial garden for the Mole of Edge Hill has been completed. (From the Liverpool Echo.)

Well, that’s all folks for now. See you next week!
