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 April 9 1811, with consecration taking place on January 12 1831.
On Monday, May 5 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.
An alternative theory to the church's structural damage, has recently been put forward by Lavery et al 08 who have argued that the church itself was never actually bombed as has been claimed since 1941 (AD). Contrary to modern folklaw and the widespread consensus as to the origins of the church's structural damage, Lavery 08 argues that the church did in fact fall victim to foul play and puts forward the preposition that the church was damaged by a deliberate arson attack contrived from the higher authorities within the evangelical Anglican church.
