Met Tony Brennan of Camelot on site to supervise the clean up of the house. A local firm undertook the clearance and as the rubbish went out the house came back to life. We even found that the emersion heater still worked. On this visit I was accompanied by Jonathan Brown of the Merseyside Civic Society and author of SAVE's latest report on Pathfinder. Jonathan reminded me that a freedom of information request had confirmed that almost £8m had been written off the value of the Welsh Streets Houses since the council left them to rot.
I walked to Lime Street Station in glorious sunshine past the Welsh Presbyterian Church on Prince's Avenue, a magnificent building, featured in the SAVE 2009 Liverpool exhibition and catalogue, which is continuing to decay.
