  Palm House Sefton Park
by sandysmith
 
 

The historic Palm House was first opened in 1896, and is home to an exotic collection of plants and palm trees.
A bombing raid during the Second World War destroyed every frame of glass in the Palm House. It was reglazed in the 1950's at a cost of 6163. But by the 1980's vandalism and disrepair meant that the Palm House had become an unsafe derelict eyesore and it was sealed off and threatened with demolition.
Thankfully a painstaking 2.5m lottery funded refurbishment programme has seen the building finally restored to it's former glory - it truly is a magnificent sight again, standing on a slight hill in Sefton Park.
