Ducie Street, Liverpool


Made up of Cairns Street, Beaconsfield Street, Jermyn Street and Ducie Street, the Granby 4 Streets were built in the 1890s and fell into disrepair after the Toxteth Riots in 1981.

Although hundreds were moved away from the area with many homes left derelict, local residents fought demolition and over the past 10 years have cleaned and planted the streets, painted houses and started a monthly market.

Now, nearly 100 homes have been brought back into use - and they have a Turner Prize to their name too.
