    I'll have to do another bike ride up to Woolton. Best place in Liverpool to go around.

    I mostly just go to the Tesco and back since theirs barely any lines .

    Most of them go to the Allerton one.

    Not sure if you mean what sort of building or the name, but it's a block of flats near Park Street - don't know what it was called.

    That is Chatsworth St and that is Entwistle Heights, a nice building, which has been blown down.

    Hmm, nice? Was it a council tower? If so then I'm sure the occupants views

    differed, did you live there? I'd actually love for all or most of the tower blocks around merseyside to still be around because they add to the skyline and

    make a city look bigger than it really is. But they're no good for living in, no community, hallways/stairs/lifts stink of piss, half filled with

    smackheads. Thats my experience of one tower block in Everton but I'm quite sure it was consistent throughout the city.

    You describe these schools as boarding schools. The difference between

    Board scools and boaeding schools is that pupils live on the premises in boarding schools. Board schools they did not live in, they were school run by the

    school board or education authority, other schools were contolled by churches.

    All the tower blocks of the 1960s were owned by the Council.
    I was once offered a flat in one in

    Kirkby, but didn't take it, & I've never lived in one.
    The B & W photo is Chatsworth Street (I got it wrong) and that is Entwistle Heights.
    Here it

    is in 1986, just before it was demolished.

    I know this thread is about schools.
    I've just looked, and have a few photos of demolished schools

    which I'll post.

    Hi M8, do you have one of Roscoe

    Garsefield Rd? I believe it's now an old folks home. It's near Broadway.

    If anyone has a picture of Gateacre village church school I would appreciate it. I don't think it is

    used as a school anymore.

    I did a Google search for gateacre school (2 separate words).
    I don't know Gateacre - I don't think they'd let

    There's also the

    old Pleasant Street Board School behind Mount Pleasant, which is currently being converted into

    flats...

    I've always wanted to get inside that Snappel, apparently, the new school opposite are trying to salvage the original sign for their new building which

    would be nice.

    Do u know what has happened to paperwork etc? It's Liverpool's oldest school building isn't it?

    When I went there, the only paperwork were some soggy textbooks in the yard, which I assume the builders binned. I didn't see anything there

    were salvaging. It was night time when I actually went inside, and it was a bit bare and stripped out, nothing much of interest there.

    I was hoping

    the sign would stay on the building after renovation as it would give it a bit of character. But if it's being taken down I hope it gets saved - would be

    criminal to destroy it.

    Thanks for the school pic. that was my first school.
    Kev. The oldest

    school building in Liverpool is in School lane Woolton, it juts out into the road, it is a tiny building and was closed up for years, it must be famous

    because I had tourists ask me about it when I was on the cabs.
    I don't know if anything has been done with it in the 25 years since I left, it would be a

    shame if it was wasted,probably one of the few remaining examples of a one room school.

    Pleasant Street School opened in 1819

    and is the oldest in the City Centre.
    It's listed, and I assume the name is part of the criteria (but I could be wrong).
    Anyway, the building

    wouldn't look right without it.

    Why? Mosty liked it. All it needed was a consierge, like in France and Spain.

    did you live there? I'd

    actually love for all or most of the tower blocks around merseyside to still be around because they add to the skyline and make a city look bigger than it

    really is. But they're no good for living in,
    The flats were brilliant for living in. Panoramic views, floor to ceiling wondows. light,

    airy, spaceous, etc.

    no community, hallways/stairs/lifts stink of piss,
    Because of no consierge

    half

    filled with smackheads. Thats my experience of one tower block in Everton but I'm quite sure it was consistent throughout the city.
    Like hell

    it was!!! Go to those around Sefton Park. If the tower blocks were properly managed in day to day running and dopes were prevented from walking in off the

    street they are superb. And they put the wrong people in them. Those who misbehaved should have been evicted.

    I used to

    go to Entwistle Heights.

    I visited a friend there for many years.
    The flats were very dismal towards the end - the corridors and lifts were

    filthy and stunk of wee !
    I remember one of the floors was completely burned out - it may have been the 4th or 5th floor, but I remember getting out of

    the lift on the wrong floor one time and stepping out into pitch blackness .. and the wind was howling down the corridor - scary !
    I also

    remember that quite often the lifts would get stuck or not be working at all. The entrance foyer was like the pits !! full of litter and the wall tiles

    broken and dirty. Quite an intimidating place actually.
    There was some sense of community remaining though .. my friend had lived there for many years

    and knew lots of neighbours in there, they looked out for one another and there was always someone to talk to. They would pop in for a coffee or to see if

    you needed anything from the shop. There was a little community hall on the ground floor at one time. They'd have meetings or a game of Bingo and suchlike.


    It's a shame that a lot of 'undesirable' types were moved into the vacant flats and ruined the place. It ended up were kids would run in off the

    street and vandalise the place.

    Ok, I'm trying to find out a little more history on the Pleasant Street Board School

    for my exploration website. Does anyone have any information/memories of the place they wouldn't mind me quoting?

    Thanks.

    Default Wavertree CE School

    Wavertree CE School was built in 1867 and is still in use. It was formerly Trinity District School. As the school is 140 years old this year we are trying to collect together any photos or memories that people may have of the school in the past.

    This school, together with St. John's, Fountains Road, Kirkdale and Bishop Goss, Grosvenor Street were built around the same time, same red brickwork and a playground on the roof as well as the street level one etc.

    I was told that Wellington Road School was just ready for opening when the First World War broke out, so it was first used as a Military Hospital.
    Mrs Roberts, who was the School Secretary there in the 1960s told me, but I've never seen it written anywhere. (Apart from toxteth.net and they got the info from me. Like other pieces on there, the one about the school comes from about 3 different people. Only the first 2 paragraphs are mine).
