The Dovedale Towers-
The Dovedale Towers on Penny Lane takes its name from a now demolished tower from which the River Mersey and its passing ships could be seen. It has also been an orphanage, a Russian Embassy and even a home to rock legend #freddiemercury
#DovedaleTowers was originally known as Grove House, and over the years had been an art gallery, a home for sick children, an orphanage, a Russian embassy, and a guest house.
This was the period when Queen front man Freddie Mercury was in residence.
He is not the only famous musician with links to the venue though as it was when the venue was known as St Barnabus’s church hall where #sirpaulmccartney was a choir boy and later played here with the Quarry Men and subsequently became a major venue on the Mersey Beat scene.
