Wavertree from the Air

Take a flight with us across the Wavertree district of Liverpool, a place full of heritage and history that can trace its roots back to the bronze age.

Fly across ‘The Mystery’, a large park and recreational space that was donated the people of the Liverpool 125 years ago by an anonymous benefactor (hence its nickname).

Explore the historic landmarks of the old Wavertree Village Lock Up (1796), Holy Trinity Church (1794) and Picton Clock (1884), the latter a lasting memorial to love, designed by leading Liverpool architect, civic leader, and Wavertree resident Sir James Picton in memory of his wife, Sarah.

And fly in the footsteps of The Beatles, crossing over St Barnabas Church (where Paul was a choir boy), Penny Lane, the former Abbey Cinema (a 1939 Art Deco gem, frequented by John and George, and featured in the original lyrics to ‘In My Life’) and George’s birthplace, 12 Arnold Grove.

Proudly produced by Love Wavertree in partnership with the Wavertree Society, for Heritage Open Days 2020.

A project conceived, developed and led by our great friend, heritage champion, Wavertree resident and Blue Badge Guide, Martin Hudson.
