BBC 'Restoration Village'
'Restoration Village' began an new 8 week series on 28 July.
Although no Liverpool buildings are featured in the series, an
unusual contestant located in the Borders of Scotland, with strong
connections to Liverpool, does.
Greenlaw Town Hall
was built by the architect John Cunningham in 1829. As you probably
know, Cunningham is most famous for his work in Liverpool, where he
built the original Philharmonic Hall, the Sailor's Home and many,
many other outstanding buildings. Unfortunately, many of
Cunningham's buildings have been destroyed, by accident or design,
over the years.
We in Greenlaw are
desperately trying to preserve the finest remaining example of this
marvellous architects work. We are hoping to get as much support as
possible from all over the UK for the Scottish heat of
'Restoration Village' which is aired on Friday 18 August 2006 at
9pm. If you have any information that could help the Greenlaw Town
Hall Restoration Campain please let them know by emailing them at:-
