For decades the bombed out church in Liverpool city centre was little more than a spot to agree to meet your friends before a night out.
Now those nights out could be inside the restored structure of St Luke's which was gutted by a German firebomb in 1941.
It has been taken off Heritage England's 'at risk' list.
But many more in the North West have been added or remain in need of the same restoration.
