The Tower, Rainhill, dates back to 1881 and was designed by Edmund Kirby, a Liverpool Architect as a stunning manor house for the Baxter family. The building was used as a hospital during WWII and then left half derelict. The Manor house’s library was used to make homemade Coca-Cola. The Oxley family later bought the house and transformed it into an independent school named Tower College, which I attended from the ages of 3-16. This incredible building was the beginning of my journey to becoming an architect.
