Here's more interior photo's of Speke Hall,it's a fantastic place and I think everyone grew up with the ghost stories of the spooks that are supposed to inhabit the place.
An old/ ancient door at Croxteth Hall: (1500 which makes it 500+ years old)

Bloody hell Kev I've never seen that before that's great,and thanks Lindy.
Kev put that on SSC that's something else and while your at it add a selection of the ones in that link they're unbelievable.
I noticed the other day they are doing tours of Knowsley Hall and the pictures shown of the interior looked unbelievable,I think they start on May 8th and finish on 12th and cost about £8.
It's one place I havn't seen. It never used to be open to the public.
It looks lovely.
It's stunning isn't it,the hall used to regulary have royal visits,we're lucky to have so much on our doorstep,I think most of us take it for granted really.Originally Posted by lindylou
Allerton Priory- This place is extremely well hidden. It has been a home for the elderly, nuns once ran it as a refuge for Irish girls. It was temporary certified 18th May 1916 for 15 girls, re-certified 1917 as a mixed school as Allerton Priory Special Industrial School for mentally defective girls under 15'. It ceased to be a Home Office school in 1933. Now, private apartments.
That's a beautiful building Kev I don't think people outside of the city would believe Liverpool has so many beautiful places.
It's beautiful, when u first see it after driving up the drive way, it quite some site.
There are many other buildings similar in that area.
I'll defo have to have a mooch with my camera then.
Have a mooch around the back, its set in beautiful grounds with a few hidden charms within this hidden charm.
Will do.Originally Posted by Kev

That Woolton Redbourne has been sold to developers I think.
Great Pics of the old Priory! Although I lived in the area, and my wifes family lived in Ravenna Rd, just around the corner from the Priory, I had never really seen it!! it was surrounded by walls etc and visitors had to apply to the 'Lodge' in Heath Rd. Your pics are showing us all, just what a lovely area we lived in, and did'nt really know it!!! Ta.Originally Posted by Kev

I don't know much about this place but visited thekids adventure bit at the back and was amazed by the building. Some hidden features inside. The main bit is a pub.
