    The Valley is halfway up; Everton Valley on the corner of St. Domingo Road on the right hand side on the way up

    The Derby was at the bottom left hand corner at the junction with Walton Road.

    Yer you're right,Ged...I'm always getting mixed up witht he bottom of St Domingo road being Everton Balley wich actually runs across the Valley.

    where the pub was is now just a piece of greenery area.

    You have a pic of it in your post war B&W scenes.

    Did this pub used to stand near to Everton Valley Post Office and was demolished around the mid-1970s?

    The post office was directly over the road from the pub.

    I thought I knew it. My mate worked at the PO in the 70s. What a pity it couldn't have been saved.

    I believe it was because of the hilly ground it was built on that it had to be demo'ed as was the case of the houses that ran up the valley on the same side and opposite side which where replaced with the new houses that are there now.

    Foundation was poor,my doctors surgery was one o them houses and the waiting room was in the celler.

    I wonder who did the old front of the Canarvon Castle before someone decided to put a couple of doors in the front of the place and ruined it.

    The Derby Arms in March 73 with thanks to Sirob who posted it some time back





    The Derby arms close up whilst undergoing demolition by Frank Lehnan from his book 'my liverpool'

    It is believed Paul McCartney was involved in trying to save this pub.
