      HISTORY

      BEATLES FLOORBOARD 

      July 6, 1957, is perhaps the most important day in modern musical history because on that day 16-year-old John Lennon was introduced to 15-year-old Paul McCartney by their mutual friend, Ivan Vaughan at St. Peter's Church.

      History Salvaged has secured several sections of the original floor of the church hall of St. Peter’s Church in Liverpool, where Paul McCartney met John Lennon for the first time on July 6, 1957, and subsequently performed as teenagers, honing their skills, on their way to becoming arguably the most important and successful Rock N Roll band of all time.

      These Witness Wood® blocks were removed when a fire in one of the side rooms of the hall in 2001 resulted in the replacement of small areas of the floor.

      Several pieces of these fire damaged English Oak floorboards were sold at auction by the Rector of St. Peter's, Reverend Kip Crooks, to help raise funds to support the replacement and repair of the church hall.

      ST PETER’S AND THE BEATLES

      When it comes to the history of the Beatles, two of the most important venues in Liverpool are the Casbah Coffee Club and the Cavern Club, and both are ‘must-see’ attractions for the thousands of Beatles fans who visit Liverpool each year.

      However, the story of the world’s most famous band did not begin at either of these iconic venues.  Instead, it began on July 6. 1957, at the St Peter’s Church fete when Ivan Vaughan decided that it was a good idea to introduce two of his music-loving friends to each other.

      On that day, St Peter’s Church witnessed the birth of the Lennon-McCartney partnership, arguably the most important, influential, and far-reaching partnership in modern music history!

      Every year, St Peter’s Church remembers that momentous day.

      St Peter’s Church was important in the lives of many members of John's family, including his uncle, George Toogood Smith, who lies in the Church graveyard.

      Another famous grave with a Beatles connection is that of Eleanor Rigby Woods. "‘Our’ Eleanor’s grave is perhaps the most-visited grave in the Churchyard, and we’re so glad that she’s no longer one of the ‘lonely people.’"
