    The Archery Lodge Cazneau Street Liverpool

    The Mersey Bowman Archery Lodge, Cazneau Street Liverpool. The old English and manly practice of Archery was a pastime which was held in estimation, in the last quarter of the 18th century, by the higher classes in Liverpool. An archery ground, with shooting butts, was formed, and respectably supported for some time, before the close of the last century, near the west side of Cazneau-street, which was then quite in the country; and the members of the society or club which supported it, were called the Ē Mersey Bowmen.Ē The principal part of the archery ground is built upon, but the lodge belonging to it still exists,^*^ and is now altered, and used as a dwelling-house and workshop, occupied by James Macdonald, a cooper, but it is hid from Cazneau-street by other houses; the west part is, however, visible from Grosvenor-street, and is rather conspicuous from having had projecting wings added to it. A view of its east front may be obtained by going up a narrow court of small mean houses, called Cazneau-place, which communicates indirectly with Grosvenor-street, into which the back door of a small yard belonging to the lodge opens. The east front is of brick; and on a stone over a large window, a bow, arrows, and a hunting-horn are appropriately carved; and on each side of the window is a stone tablet, on which are (1) Goreís General Advertiser of 22nd September, 1775.
