    Default Wedding Photos St Barnabas Mossley Hill Wavertree

    [QUOTE=Max;38351]Theres Official Signs now that say City Of Liverpool Mossley Hill though.

    QUOTE]

    I think these new district signs are designed to show vaguely where you are and should not be interpreted as marking the beginning or end of a place. Mossley Hill has an enormous number of defintions and now seems to include the whole of Aigburth according to the boundaries of the new council ward of Mossley Hill. So as I said, there are really no defined boundaries for Mossley Hill but Moslsey Hill, Wavertree and Mossley Hill, Allerton would both be correct.

    The original purpose of my post was to query whether anyone could loan St Barnabas church copies of old wedding photos taken at the church. As many overseas who reda these posts may have got married at the church I felt it would be helpful to include its full address as many will know it as St Barnabas, Wavertree as well as St Barnabas Mossley Hill.

    For interest I attach a scan of the church's organ specification entitled St Barnabas, Wavertree

    Ive lived in Wavertree all my life and love the place. In some ways it still has the feel of a small village about it, and not just part of a big city. If anyones interested Ive got loads of 'old' photos on my web site. http://www.liverpoolinpictures.com/W..._Liverpool.htm

    Went for a walk through the Tech Park at lunch and decided to have a nose at Wavertree Tech Park Station as I'd never really stopped to look at the view.

    1st photo shows the line heading out towards Broadgreen.

    2nd photo shows the line heading towards Edge Hill - the Cathedral in the background and the large white building is where I work!

    (and these were taken off my mobile too - washed out - but impressed none the less!)

    Fine pic, Max and thanks for the link to your Flickr site. I have a black and white of the Monk's Well that I took in the Sixties with a couple of young scallys on it. I will post it here sooner or later when I can get it scanned. I find it interesting that the sandstone cross on top of the well is obviously newer than the stonework below which is eroded and evidently of greater date, although not as old perhaps as "1414" the date that is on it. Or at least it is my understanding that arabic numbered dates were not in use that far back. I think it is also true that there is no evidence of the spring there now, is that right? Does anyone have any information on whether the well has just been capped off or it dried up or what?

    RESIDENTS and workers have welcomed plans to transform a rundown Liverpool high street and create scores of jobs.

    The multi-million pound scheme would see ageing buildings in the centre of Edge Hill pulled down and replaced with shops and flats.

    At the centre of the Wavertree Road development would be a new Taskers DIY superstore, generating 100 jobs, and a large supermarket.

    Smaller shops, blocks of flats, and offices, including new premises for Wavertree customer focus centre and JobCentre Plus, would also be built.

    Liverpool council is now working with developer Neptune and Taskers on a detailed plan. continues.....

    Well as long as they don't come any closer to Highgate Street/Mason Street or Smithdown Lane I'll be happy - centre of the tunnels activity there!

    Default Edge Hill Railway Cottages

    I'm keen to find out as much info about these buildings, why on earth are they still there for a start in their present state? Is there any plans for restoration? Are there any older pictures of them etc?







    Cheers

    I'm pretty certain they were cottages for railway workers at Edge Hill Station.
    I'll check maps and get back.

    Later.
    I should have checked my street directory first!
    In 1936, the various addresses in that part of Tunnel Road were all occupied by different coal merchants.
    After studying maps, they seem too small to be separate houses, and only seem big enough to contain one room each.
    There's also no open space at the back of the properties, so it looks like they were probably built as offices (in the 1860s or 1870s) - more than likely by the railway company.

    Surprisingly LOL that's the old antiques shop on Tunnel Road - built in 1840 and was recently going to be demolished if the council had their way!!

    It once stood next to the Tunnel Hotel on Tunnel Road.

    Yeah, they were not there in 1838 - that's one of my maps of Edge Hill - Tunnel road wasn't even built then! They do appear as one block on my 1908 map though.

    Personally you would think they had another level at some point - lots of the houses in Edge Hill were taken down a level for unknown reasons - even the Mount Vernon pub used to be a 3 story building!!

    It's not from LLC archives I can tell you that Kev. It's the curved portion of the gate on the right hand side of my drawing.
