particularly by the residents of Kensington and Fairfield.The Church was built between 1851-53 and built by the architect W Raffles BrownFor more information please click the link below
People can show their opposition at the St. Sebastian centre, Lockerby Road, Fairfield
(just off Prescot Road, behind the market)
Saturday at 10am, where we are making the case for retaining at least the spire.
Fortunately our friends at SAVE Britain's Heritage have sponsored a survey by one of the UK's
foremost stone masonry experts and steeplejacks, to demonstrate the spire can be economically
repaired and retained, if the Bishop's Diocese show sufficient will. Kensington's local Community Development Trust
have made clear they are willing to discuss a takeover of the site.
Fairfield residents have the support of the Council's Historic Environment champion Cllr Berni Turner
Try and get to St. Seb's on Saturday morning.Campaign website by Jonathan Wild http://www.fairfieldspire.co.
Statement from Cllr. Colin Eldridge
Liberal Democratic Parliamentary Spokesperson for Liverpool, Wavertree
"I am disappointed with the proposal to demolish the Spire on St. John's Church.
For over One Hundred years the spire has stood above the houses of Fairfield
and it has been a symbol of the local community.
I am determined to do what I can to help save this famous and important
landmark and I call upon those that have the ability and means to help also.
