    Default Sussex Street in Toxteth Park

    Can anyone tell me anything about Sussex Street ? My great great grandfather was the publican at the Grapes Inn, 22 - 24 Sussex Street according to the 1871 census.

    I've checked some old maps and I think Sussex Street is now the North - South part of Sussex Gardens just along from Luke Street.

    Does anyone have any pictures or information about the area before it was redeveloped ? The maps I have seen seem to show nearby streets as back to back terraces but Sussex Street itself looks to have had bigger buildings.

    Thanks. I live a bit further afield than Widnes (my birthplace) these days otherwise I'd pop down and have a look for myself - just in case anyone thinks I am being a bit lazy !

    Sussex St went from Upper Warwick St to Upper Hill St. It continued from Dickens St, which still exists.

    Probably had 3 to 4 high multi-family houses. Sussex Gdns was built on it.

    how it once was?

    The 1930s. There was a cooperage on the corner of Upper Warwick St. Sussex St was there in 1838, however the buildings demolished in the 1930s would have been poor quality buildings built after 1838. The Victorians built some real cheap slummy rubbish.
