Greenbank House

A Grade II listed building, originally the residence of the Rathbone family.


Eleanor Rathbone assisted in establishing the School of Social Science at the University of Liverpool, where she lectured in public administration. Her connection with the university is still recognised by the Eleanor Rathbone building, lecture theatre and Chair of Sociology. The building's unique architecture has evolved from many additions to the original farmhouse William Rathbone IV bought in 1809.


Assisted by Conservationists, Greenbank House has been renovated to bring it back to its former glory.
