Aintree Pub – reused for a different business purpose

I have commented before on the closure of pubs; The Priory in Litherland being one where locals, in that case, have tried to move heaven and earth to save their pub.

Another one to go recently was The Aintree in Aintree Road Bootle and I feared that this architecturally interesting building could be demolished or significantly altered. However, it is being reused in a sensitive way by a motor factor company and the integrity of the interesting facade has been retained.

Although not an old building the herringbone brickwork shows that some imagination went into the design of this pub back in days when striking buildings were not uncommon as pubs.
