History in the making: Incredible drone shots capture Liverpool in Lockdown

28/04/2020

We’re staying home to keep each other safe and to support our key workers, whose bravery, expertise and dedication has never been more important to the welfare of our wonderful city.

Whether under blue skies or night-lit, these extraordinary drone images from Mark Stansfield, capture a city which awaits our return.


Across a sleeping city, St John’s Beacon, home to the voice of Liverpool, casts an unfaltering eye across our empty streets, gazing towards the epic waterfront which remains the boldest statement of our heritage, forever captured in our hearts, the lights burn bright.

Gaze fondly over the grandfather buildings of St. George’s Quarter, including the Grade I listed St George’s Hall of 1841, standing opposite Liverpool Empire Theatre, where thousands of us have continued to gather, gaze and daydream since childhood.

The sweeping rooftop of Liverpool Lime Street Station weaves into focus, reminding us of our departures and the many arrivals that have made our home a world-class destination since 1836.

St. John’s Gardens, the evergreen heart of our history. The setting of Liverpool World Museum, with heritage spanning from Britain’s first public art gallery, The Walker, built in 1877, still housing one of the most renowned collections in the country. The epic circle and life-cycle of Central Library, inspiring and educating residents and honorary citizens since 1860.

From the Lawson brothers who gave us Wellington’s Column, to the three-tier Steble Fountain from a former Liverpool mayor, and our two stunning city centre cathedrals, many gifts have been bestowed, including these sacred places of worship, where lives, loves and lifetimes are forever remembered.

The depths of delights across these city skies leave no doubt as to why Liverpool became the world famous residence of ever loyal Liver Birds, who remind us, there’s no place quite like our home.

Lockdown 2020. A moment in time, a moment captured to remind us, in no time at all we’ll be loving Liverpool like never before, and like never again.
