Repair works at Croxteth Hall

Major repair works are to take place at Croxteth Hall – at no cost to council taxpayers.

The Mayor’s cabinet has agreed that £320,000 be spent on repairs to the Hall’s roof, chimney stacks and heating system following a recent survey which identified work which needed to be carried out.

It will be funded by the Croxteth Hall Trust Fund which was established to provide a dowry for the maintenance of the building.

Councillor Tim Moore cabinet member, said: “Croxteth Hall is a major attraction for the city and it is very important that it is kept in a good state of repair.

“This fund was set up to maintain the building and pay for work such as this. It makes eminent sense that we carry out these repairs using that fund so no costs fall on council taxpayers.

“It means that Croxteth Hall  will be even more attractive to both local people and visitors from further afield.”

The works are expected to be completed by March.

The hall’s Queen Anne Wing reopened early this year after it had been closed for 60 years following a fire. Its refurbishment was also funded through the Trust Fund.
