At Rice Lane City Farm
From a visit during summer 2019:
Coming soon and now open is something new as well as old, in one of Liverpool’s very best secret places.
I first visited The Chapel Cafe at Rice Lane City Farm back in March this year, when it was all scaffolds, paint and possibilities. Now it’s open, or at least it’s had what the friendly group of friends running it are calling ‘a soft opening.’
Meaning there are drinks and a bite to eat to be had all days of the week for now, in a gorgeous converted chapel. And that more food and cooked food at that will follow, with a grander opening as soon as various works have been carried out and more stuff is connected up. Which will be soon.
But even as it is it’s well worth your time and a visit to see something so exquisite in the making, as Sarah and I did this rainy Saturday morning. Followed by a walk round the grounds and fields and graves and wildflowers you might not have known were at the long end of a road, just off Rice Lane, in Walton.
So well done Tom, Elena, Fred, Myriam and everyone who’s helped. And well done you for going to visit. You will won’t you?
The Chapel Cafe is open every day from 10:00am to 6:30pm, at Rice Lane City Farm, Rawcliffe Road, L9 1AW
And while visiting you can look round the beautiful grounds of the City Farm, including visiting the grave of Robert Tressell, author of ‘The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists.’
