The area’s intriguing name is rooted in Liverpool’s industrial past, as it was here in the 19th-centrury that ‘roperies’ were established to make ropes for the sailing ships. The work required long, straight stretches of ground to lay out the ropes, and as urbanaisation took hold, the location of the roperies dictated the layout of the streets. There are over 100 listed buildings in Ropewalks, its most famous landmark is St Luke’s Church, otherwise known as the Bombed-out Church due to damage sustained in WW2.
To the south of Ropewalks is Chinatown. The oldest established Chinese community in Europe, Chinatown dates back to the 1834 when the first vessels from China arrived in Liverpool to trade silk and other goods. From the 1890s onwards Chinese businesses began setting up to serve the increasing number of Chinese seaman employed in the city.
