 Visit to the Victoria Gallery and Museum 
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? - April 2019


Photo is of some of 15 members in the Quadrangle of the Victoria Buildings on Brownlow Hill during a visit to the Victoria Gallery and Museum on 24 April. Everybody enjoyed an enthralling tour of the Gallery and Museum marvelling at stunning architecture and many displays of the University's art and heritage collections. The visit was topped-off with a delicious lunch in the cafe. 
A hidden gem in Liverpool well worth a visit.




Purpose of Group: 
To visit and appreciate buildings of interest locally and enable members to follow-up the visit with their own research if they wish.

Visit of this NEW Group to Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral - February 2019

Pictured above is the inaugural visit of this NEW Group to Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral (14 February). Two of our members rang the Cathedral bell which precedes 12 o'clock prayers. The tour included an area known as Dulverton Bridge which provided an amazing view of the main altar and Cathedral windows. The tour group of 16 was led by John Stoddern, one of our members who volunteers at the Cathedral.
