Isn’t ‘Heritage’ a peculiar word and concept? How come some things are ‘Heritage’ and others merely ‘ordinary.’ And who decides anyway? Being ‘National Heritage Weekend’ when you can get into approved places you might not always be able to, I decided to walk round the neighbourhood here and have a think.
Granby 4 Streets of course. Where I spent most of yesterday and much of the last week. This week we’ve started handing out the keys to the first Community Land Trust houses to come off site. This week they’ve started turning into homes. Heritage or just places where people live?
Well obviously as Heritage as you can get.
I’ve ranted about the iniquity of this thing on here before so I won’t repeat myself. Now it’s being run twice a year I hope the City Council are charging it enough to fund the inclusive and free festivals we also have on here?
I don’t go in. I can only stand so much officially sanctioned Heritage tourism.
The Globe, where Margie’s assured warm welcome would now seem to have been taken over by Janette!
Getting a piece of the action in a place that had no action in it for years. A leftover place where some of Liverpool’s future is currently being created from its leftover heritage. Well done all.
Delivered at 3am one Christmas Day in the morning, apparently.
Heritage this, but living heritage. Somewhere I’d like to come and sit on a quiet, nothing particualrly happening kind of day. But do have a look this weekend while you can.
Time for a quiet sit and a drink in a secretly quiet place just a few yards away from Liverpool One.
