Driving along through the Wirral, my partner spotted this wonderful derelict house, which stands overlooking Egremont Promenade with views over the River Mersey towards Liverpool.
It’s beautiful, but I’m very saddened to read that there are plans to tear it down and replace it with cheap social housing. Isn’t it a disgrace when they could do it up into nice apartments and preserve the history of a well built home?
This place is known as Gibson House and it was built in 1906 from funds generously donated by a wealthy Liverpool cotton merchant called Andrew Gibson. It was a home for widows of seafarers.
I’m just so glad that I managed to capture the beauty of this place and I hope that someone steps in and rescues it. If I had the money, I’d buy it and do it up. Read more about it here.
