Visiting and Contact with the Museum: We do not receive mail at the Museum premises. The Museum Archive Office has now moved to offices in the Artists' Club off Dale Street in Liverpool. The club address is Artists Club, 5 Eberle Street, Liverpool L2 2AG (please note this is not the Trust's postal address).  If you wish to arrange a visit we would be delighted to see you but only by prior appointment.

Dress Code

The club, (which has generously provided an office for us) is a very old-established private members club with a recognised dress code and, for visitors calling after 12:30 pm, we would ask that adults dress appropriately (eg gentlemen: reasonably smartly, preferably collar and tie and no denim). However, there is no need or the Royal Ascot look! Earlier visitors may be more informal!


Eberle Street is a very narrow street inaccessible to general motor traffic off the Town Hall side of Dale Street (ie north side) near the junction with North John Street. There is now vehicle entry from Dale Street and street is blocked by bollards halfway down. Visitors are asked not to use the entrance bell for the Artists Club if possible but to use a mobile to phone us inside on 0151 236 0007 when one of us will come to the door. Moorfields and James Street stations are both quite near. There is a nearby car park in Tempest Hey with access off Tithebarn Street but with no vehicle access from Eberle Street/Dale Street. We are normally there from 10:15 am until 3 pm on Wednesdays. We would always try to see a visitor who finds themselves in Liverpool unexpectedly if circumstances allow but a phone all (even if immediately in advance) is essential. The best plan is to phone Dennis Reeves or Major Ian Riley to arrange a visit. This can often be done at short notice.The telephone in the Archive Office is 0151 236 0007 (obviously manned only when we are there and we do not monitor the message facility). Alternative days are always possible in case of necessity (subject to our own commitments and those of the Club).

The Honorary Secretary has seen visitors at his own home near the intersection of the M6 and M62 on occasion making use of digital resources. Contact with the Museum may be made by telephone and post at the address below or by e-mail.

There continues to be a serving Territorial Army element of the Liverpool Scottish as part of A (Ladysmith) Company of the 4th Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment (King's, Lancashire and Border) based at Townsend Avenue in Liverpool and a Liverpool Scottish detachment of Merseyside ACF now operates from the Merseyside Centre for the Deaf on Queen's Drive L13.

Please DO NOT write to the Museum Archive Office at Eberle Street (or phone the Artists Club itself) but DO use the Culcheth address above.
