Wellington Rooms, Mount Pleasant, Liverpool - Liverpool

Built as a private assembly room for the Wellington Club in 1815. Severe dry rot continues to be monitored. The lease now rests with the Duchy of Lancaster. The Local Authority has set up a Steering Group, which has commissioned a condition survey and feasibility study to identify an end use. Steering Group members include Historic England, Merseyside Buildings Preservation Trust and Liverpool's universities. A Historic England grant aided scheme has addressed the most urgent repairs.
