Eddesbury is privately owned, and as such, any visits without permission from the owner would be on private property. There appears to have been many attempts to gain access to the building in the past from individuals and it is always a double edged sword of being thankful that people have gained access to the building to bring out its inner beauty, one always is fearful of the damage caused by gaining access from those undesirables who would have little consideration for the beauty and historical architecture.


However, we are pleased to bring you some images on Eddesbury that have been sourced from ‘urban exploration’ people who have accessed the building on previous occasions. Without these images, no one would be able to see the stunning work that James Francis Doyle did on the building, and yet it gives an insight in to the present condition of the building. How is another building in West Derby just sitting there continuing to rot? Much like Sandfield Tower, this is a Grade 2 listed building yet because it is hidden by the trees at the front, many people do not even know it is there. Would this building stand empty in the centre of London having such historical connections to James Francis Doyle? We think not!

The images below are in no particular order simply because I have yet to procure a floor plan of the building. I have seen a copy of one in the building itself, but the image is of a low resolution. I have written to Liverpool City Council to see if they can provide me with a floor plan from their archives. The one thing that is apparent is that it is original. The 1884 building has stood well in the test of time, but there are now many parts of the internals that are falling down, abandoned and in need of some serious work. The ornate fireplaces are stunning, the wooden panelling downstairs looks in fine condition, and the staircase is a joy to see.


Can we not act now as a City and save this fine building before it is abandoned for another 20 years like Sandfield Tower? My thanks go to the 28 Days Later Urban Exploration Group & Derelict Places Group for the images.
