View Full Version : Litherland

I am a student at the University of Central Lancashire, and I am currently undertaking a research project surrounding Litherland. Having lived in Litherland for 21 years, I know the area pretty well. However, I know very little or nothing of it's history. If anyone has any information, stories regarding the area or old images of any part of Litherland, I would be very grateful.

Welcome to Yo.
Have you trid Bootle Times Website
This site is good too if you haven't seen it already:
Being in Sefton, districts like this, Ford and Netherton, do tend to be forgotten I feel.

Bootle, Seaforth and Litherland are all closer to the docks, and Liverpool's reason for being, than all those really "outlying" districts. So there!
I agree they are all as important as each other.
It's shocking to think this can just happen on the street in an area where I know people and used to drink.

Litherland to me brings back memories of the sausage factory,the lift bridge over over the canal,tram rides to the canal learning to swim because we thought the water was cleaner than in Kirkdale.
...Spent a few years travelling from Kirkby to Litherland camera club.
Then many more years playing bowls at various bowls clubs and park greens in the area.

Ee! by eck lad,de don'tmake em like that anymore.
I had a BSA Bantam,it might have been small class but it packed a punch...only wish I'd kept it now for summer use.
My other bike was a Lambretta.
A model of the lift bridge on display at an exhibition in Waterloo last summer. The canalside house is still there.

Do you think that Litherland is a well known suburb of Liverpool?
I've only just seen this thread.
Is Litherland well known ? do you mean well known outside of Liverpool ?
Of course, we all know Litherland here, but maybe outsiders further afield from the north west will not have heard of it. (unless they are a Beatles expert .. Litherland town hall. ) :)

Some work their fingers to the bone
some skive and shirk and couldn't-care-less
but the butcher and the bridge-keeper take theirs home
"Where have all the bridges gone
tucked up safely everyone..."

Ain't got a clue what a bot is? Smurfy but she has signed up to Yo recently.
The same thing happened to WSteve someone replicated his post under another alias,Norm pointed it out in another thread.

bot - Short for "Robot" a bot is a program that is designed to automate tasks
Pretty much forum spam
