Bombed Out Chiurch Liverpool Reviews
A ruin in the heart of Liverpool May 20, 2011
St. Luke's church, known to the locals as the "bombed out church" is located on the corner of Berry Steet and Leece Street, oposite the end of Bold Street. It is called the "bombed out church" because on the 5th May 1941, a german bomb landed in the church and exploded leaving the carcass of the building in tacked just without a roof. You can actually go inside this church and have a look around and they usually have event on in there, such as art exhibitions or live music events, there is a small area around the the church which is classed as a public park with a memorial to the dead from the irish famine, but this closes around early evening time. The bell tower of this building has a clock and someone once told me this stopped at the point when the bomb hit and exploded, im not sure how true it is, but i dont remember the clock working myself so im guessing this could very well be true.
All in all, this is a cool place to have a look around and really only does take up around 10 minutes of your time, theres not much to see or do there if im going to be honest, its just a little piece of history for you and has not been changed since the bomb hit. The church is around 5minute walk from the main shopping area of Liverpool so not that far to walk and get to really.
