Rodney Street[edit]

Rodney Street was laid out in 1783-4 by William Roscoe and named after Lord Rodney, who in 1782 secured a naval victory over the Comte de Grasse. It was developed piecemeal up to the 1820’s with houses for the affluent, escaping the old town centre. A few houses have 5 bays, with central doors, but most are 3 bays. They were erected in pairs or short runs by different developers which led to an inconsistent roof line (This can also be seen in the photograph of Catherine Street above) No. 9 was the birth place of Arthur Clough, poet born in 1819. No. 62 (built 1792-3) was the birthplace in 1808, of William Ewart Gladstone, Prime minister of England on four separate occasions through the 1860’s to the 1890’s). No.59 was home and studio to Edward Chambre Hardman (1898 - 1988), Photographer and is now owned by the National Trust and is open to the public. On the north side of Rodney Street stands the Scottish Presbyterian Church of St Andrew, built in 1823-4. The body of the church is of a simple two storey design with round arched windows and stuccoed walls designed by Daniel Stewart. The façade of blackened ashlar, designed by John Foster Jr., is an imposing composition of Ionic entrance columns, flanked by corner towers, topped with Corinthian columns and domes. The north tower has been demolished and the building is currently shrouded in scaffolding, awaiting a much needed restoration.

I removed the above and placed it here, as it is on the edge of Canning ... If anyone thinks it should be re-instated, please discuss below David Humphreys 13:17, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Rodney Street is actually outside the Canning Area which is why (after further investigation) I removed my own section about it. Despite the fact that Hope Street and Gambier Terrace are in the Rodney Street Conservation area, they are still both in Canning. See the map on the Liverpool City Council Websitethat shows the extent of the area known as Canning David Humphreys 13:32, 17 May 2006 (UTC)


Opening a debate on Canning (from Falkner Square), despite Canning existing on WP Canning, there is no such is a modern 'phrase' for want of a better word, representing a cluster of streets. Alternatively named the Georgian Quarter. I think the definition for Canning is based on it being a conservation zone, like that around Castle Street at the other end of the city. Also, you can say the same for Granby, in Toxteth. Or Breckfield, (based on Breckfield Road) in the cusp of Anfield and Everton. There are other examples but, Canning is a modern term by whom I dont know but it has found its way in to the Council phrasebook, still does not mean it is an area. It is on the edge of Liverpool city centre near Toxteth (and Edge Hill) a mixture of L1 AND L8 postcodes. Dmcm2008 (talk) 18:53, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

When I lived there in the 1970s it tended to be called Abercrombie - as in Abercrombie Residents Action Group (ARAG).Danensis (talk) 12:24, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Turning the tide[edit]

I object to the phrase "The tide began to turn noticeably in the 1990s". I would say the tide began to turn in 1974 with the passing of the Housing Act, and the work of Don Simpson, Paul Harman and others. Danensis (talk) 12:27, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
