Tributes to Ken Dodd at Liverpool Lime Street
Tributes to Ken Dodd at Liverpool Lime Street
Three weeks after the comedian's death at the age of 90, the bronze sculpture of Ken Dodd in Lime Street station has been embellished with a garland, flowers and tickling sticks. One of the ribbons hanging from the multi-coloured tickling stick poignantly proclaims:

"Tatty bye Doddy, tatty bye!"
Liverpool Lime Street Station
Liverpool Lime Street is the largest and oldest railway station in Liverpool, having been opened to the public in August 1836 as the new western terminus of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway LinkExternal link .

Today, it is a terminus for a branch of the West Coast Main Line from London Euston, as well as TransPennine Express trains and other train services. An urban through underground station on the Wirral Line of the Merseyrail network is accessed via the main terminus.

It is a grade II listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 359020 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings)
Chance Meeting
The bronze statues of two of Liverpool's most iconic characters, Ken Dodd OBE (LinkExternal link ) and Bessie Braddock MP (LinkExternal link ) were unveiled in June 2009 on the site of the former Virgin Trains welcome lounge in the main concourse at Lime Street station.

Merseytravel commissioned Liverpool artist Tom Murphy to create the work, which shows the comedy legend and the late politician in a 'Chance Meeting' in the middle of one of the city’s most important gateways. It was unveiled by Ken Dodd on 11 Jun 2009 (LinkExternal link Liverpool Echo )
