    Regarding the mudmen, wasn`t there an old film starring Andrew Ray called the Mudlark made on the cast iron shore.
    I think that building was owned by the Mason family who also owned the local dairies, may explain the Bull or Cows head on wall.

    just to add , according to my dad it was the Dingle Dockers who nicknamed the Garston men "mudmen"...as a skit.....allan

    Hi Joe,
    There was indeed a film called The Mudlark and Ted Ray's son Andrew' played the juvenile lead,but it was about the Thames. Mudlarks were children who scavenged on the foreshore and sold their findings to dealers. A very fine film it was too,

    Default Local History Exhibtion Garston Park Church March 17 & 18th, 2012

    Long time away for me. Nice to be back. What news do I bring? Well it's a major Local History Exhibition at Garston Park Church on Saturday March 17th ( 10 am to 4pm) and Sunday March 18th (12 noon to 4 pm). If you have an interest in Garston, Aigburth and Grassendale's history, you'll not be disappointed.

    The meeting is in the Church Hall which is at the junction of Garston Old Rd, Bowden Rd and Island Rd. Some may know the building as Island Rd Methodist Church
