    Default Sport and Recreation Heritage

    Peeps, lets get this thread going places again.

    Now we've developed a healthy taste for photography, can we please get out and about looking for buildings, sporting venues, structures, road names plus other clues and indicators to Liverpool's rich sport and recreation heritage past.

    Please include any older images from various sources too, old gymnasiums, sporting venues etc...

    Here's the earliest example of evidence of sport, Robin Hoods Stone (Booker Avenue) - 8ft tall. The grooves face the sun, we can assume that the Arches did their sharpening with their backs to the sun!!

    Default Grand National

    Aintree Racecourse is the home of the world's most celebrated, most talked about, most magical race, the Martell Cognac Grand National. No other racecourse can compare to the sheer romance of Aintree. The mere mention of the name conjures up memories of triumph and tragedy, of battle and bravery, of victory and conquering the odds.

    Today, Aintree Racecourse is one of the most sophisticated, forward thinking sporting venues in the world. It holds the richest National Hunt Race in Europe and attracts TV audiences worldwide of around 600 million. Only figures like these speak for the sheer passion the race evokes on a global basis.
