Save St Luke's!

Colloquially known as 'The Bombed Out Church', St Luke's at the bottom of Leece Street, Liverpool was built between 1811 - 1832 and was struck by an incendiary device on the night of 6th May 1941 during the heavy bombing the city endured in the Blitz. 

Ever since then it has remained a shell, standing as a testament and tribute to the losses of WWII and the struggle and survival in the city.

However the council has recently admitted that they are struggling to afford the maintenance costs required to keep St Luke's for the people. A petition has been started and can be signed here It currently has more than 19,000 signatures and even Yoko Ono has joined the campaign.
