Project Description

Restoration of Victorian shopping arcade

BTP worked as architects on a project to restore the historic Cambridge shopping arcade in Southport town centre to its former glory.

The Victorian arcade, which was built in 1852-1853, is a stunning landmark which links the Town Hall Gardens and the Lord Street boulevard with the busy Chapel Street shopping area. But in recent months, the arcade – home to dozens of local independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants – had steadily fallen into disrepair. 

BTP worked in partnership with Sefton Council and Quadriga specialist contractors to replace the overhead glazing, install a new drainage system and implement pigeon control measures.

Further works under the second phase of the scheme, from the Chapel Street entrance to Cambridge Arcade, are due to take place later in the year.
