    Default Dingle Glen in Old Photos

    Hi guys, I thought I'd share with you some old photo's that I've collected of the Dingle area. It features Dingle glen, which was a wooded valley and natural beauty spot leading right down to the Mersey. More notoriously, it was the site of the last duel to be fought in Liverpool - between Mr Sparling, of St. Domingo house, and Mr Grayson, an eminent ship builder, on Sunday morning, 7.00am 24th February, 1804. I've also included some maps and photo's to help you get your bearings. I hope you enjoy, regards,

    I'd never heard of Dingle Glen. I loved the idea of you following it all up with todays pictures.

    I forgot this one. It's looking up the glen towards the Turner memorial home. The council, it appears, in the process of filling it in? Sorry I haven't got the date of the photo. It looks 1900's though.
