This church is on the corner of Park Road South and Merton Place, Birkenhead. It looks like it has had a recent roof fire (the internal walls are not sooted).

Its last role was as "Park Christian Centre" but was formely called "Church of Christ", before this again it was known as the "Catholic Apostolic Church" in 1875

Sadly it looks like it has had a recent roof fire, the internal walls are not sooted. The electricity supply cable has been renewed so this may be an electrical fault. I don't know when this happened.

Thanks Upton - couldn't find them last night.

Did it burn down yesterday? Just caught the tale end of Buzz/Heart FM saying something about a fire with four tenders on Park Road South.

It didn't smell that recent and wasn't particularly wet, security firm had brand new signs up and eleccy had been sorted, so I assumed it was a while ago - but I was surprised, have passed there alot recently and not noticed it burnt down.

I thought it would be, I checked it last night and no sign of anything.
The structure of the building is fine, it would just need a new roof including full timbers and windows. Trouble is that there is nobody who wants it.

The council have examined the building and decided that the gable end is unstable (I've seen it wobble - it is) and that the remaining woodwork has to come down to make the building safe.

After this process the building will be demolished, although I don't know if they may try to retain the tower which is an old landmark. There is a chance some of the brickwork on the tower may also be unsafe - seeing the effects of the fire on the gable end I would be surprised if the tower has surviced unscathed.

Initially they were using a hook on the end of the crane to pull down the rafters, they tried to move the kingpin at the curved gable and the hook broke!

The two smaller gable and the remaining woodwork will be coming down tommorrow.

Apparently this is the 4th or 5th time some kids have tried to set it on fire recently.

I have some more information if anybody wants, PM me.

How sad that such a fine building has fallen to some scumbag scrotes and a box of matches. The quality workmanship that went into these buildings is/was amazing. The end roof trusses were a fine example.

Doesn't anybody see the immature dregs of society hanging around BEFORE they have their laughs ??
