Church of St Luke
General information Town or city Liverpool Country England Construction started 1811 Completed 1831
St Luke's Church in Liverpool, England, is located on the corner of Berry Street and Leece Street opposite the top of Bold Street. It was designed by John Foster, and construction of the building began on 9 April 1811, with consecration taking place on 12 January 1831.
On Monday, 5 May 1941, St Luke's was hit and burned by an incendiary bomb. Today it still stands as a burnt out shell, commonly known locally as "the bombed-out church", and its churchyard is a public park. A memorial to the dead of the Irish famine has been added to the grounds recently.
Additionally, since 2003 Urban Strawberry Lunch has been compiling a sound archive oral histories of the Liverpool Blitz, the Finest Hour project. They also organise an annual event commemorating the anniversary of the bombing of St Lukes.
