Buildings lost through the construction of the Royal

This fine church was lost for the construction of the Royal Liverpool teaching hospital in the mid 1960s. It congregation was once supplied by the myriad of residential streets on both sides of Prescot Street when it was a built up area. These included those in its immediate surroundings such as Iden Street, Jubille Street, Hardwick Square, Cecil Street, Montague Street, Hardwick Street, Hyde Street, Stand Street, West Street and Fortescue Street. Just across the main Prescot Street were Childwall Street, Prospect Street, Shepherd Street, Moira Street, Croft Street, Epworth Street, Codrington Street, Harper Street, Ashley Street, Wrigley Street, Manfred Street, Belgrave Street and Chapel Place.

I remember reading somewhere that the original plan late 1950s was to demolish SFX Church and School and its surrounding terraced Streets off Islington / Shaw Street for the proposed New Royal Hospital Site.
I think the article claimed that the  Catholic  Church Authorities were not playing ball ,so the authorities turned their attention to the area close by off Pescot Street which is described by Alice at the start of the thread

Found a photo of St. Judes in Hardwick Street with some information.
