Grade 2 and below are not worth the papers they are listed on….

Best of Luck. I suppose you know it’s a Listed Building? But then, so were the Palace/ABC, and the Palladium/Odeon, but they were demolished. Have you contacted the CTA and English Heritage, and the local press?

I regret to say that this fabulous building is now empty and under threat of demolition. Please help me to save it!

The 2nd grand Compton was removed in the 1990`s and reinstalled in a music room in Tarleton-about 7-8 miles outside Southport.Oddly enough ,the first Compton is now being installed in Hesketh Bank(previous at Chorley Town Hall)which is an adjoining now both grand organs are now within a couple of miles of each other!
