Ravenswood. I think we all knew this was coming but we hoped it wouldn’t

Big hole in the roof round one of the chimneys but with so much woodwork inside the building its difficult to tell how much damage has been done.

Full marks to the fire services.

Still damping down this afternoon. Structure doesn't generally look like its been over-cooked.

Nothing to stop the whole area being built on now I suppose!

No patch of green anywhere along the eastern side of Wirral is safe from shoddy little houses being crammed onto it!

Should try and get that or at least part of it habitable and put someone in to look after it , otherwise eventually it will go like so many other listed buildings go , up in flames gone forever...

That is why scaffolding is there, it is supposed to be getting turned into flats. Developer said it would cost £1m before the fire to refurbish thanks to council not maintaining it.

Probable perpetrators were caught on the site's security CCTV, only a matter of time before they get the knock on the door.

Ravenswood has had its structural survey and it is classed as having 20% damage but is structurally sound.

The building was insured.

They are going to remove and store the chimneys and part of the roof as a precaution in case of high winds. They are also allocating community patrol 24/7 alongside Occulus the current security firm.

Torus, the developers, are still intending to rebuild it.

Good , I’m glad , such a lovely house . I used to clean it years ago during my stint as a school cleaner. Used to love it when I was there on my own , thinking about all the grand people going down that lovely staircase.

I used to be around after school quite a bit, there were a couple of cleaners looking busy in Ravenswood, you'd go back an hour later and they were still doing the banister. I think they just preferred being in that building than the rest of the school. I quite liked the main building as well, the new concrete buildings were just trash.
