As we investigate Kirkdale mysterious Gordon Institute).
Built in 1886, the building was originally known as Gordon Working Lads Institute.
It is thought to be Britain's oldest surviving purpose built Boy's Club and set the standard for many clubs that followed it.
The Institute was erected at a cost of £50,000 by William Cliff, a Liverpool merchant, as a memorial to his eldest son who died at 11 years of age in 1853.
The Institute was so named to commemorate and perpetuate the memory of Major General Charles Gordon, who was killed in battle at Khartoum in 1885.
The ethos of the Institute was to promote educational, recreational and sporting facilities to poor and disadvantaged boys of Liverpool and in so helping them to live 'happy and useful lives'.
This is as such evident from an extensive marble plaque in the vestibule. The building closed in 1995 but was revived in 2000 by a local action group.
sightings of strange shadow figures roaming around the building ,disembodied voices have been heard in the main hall . It's our job to find out who these spirits are !
