Clayton Square shopping centre
Clayton Square shopping centre
The glass roof of the Clayton Square shopping centre and the first floor coffee shop. The original Clayton Square was laid out between 1745-50, named after William Clayton, Mayor of Liverpool in 1689 also representing the town in eight parliaments between 1698-1714. The grand houses eventually became retail establishments and even a theatre but over the passage of time the quality of the shops deteriorated and the square became a bit of an eyesore. In 1986, after a Public Inquiry following numerous calls for the old square to be restored, the entire area was demolished to make way for the present retail development.
