    Default Chipping Street, Liverpool 8

    I just thought of something from my school days I thought you might be interested in!
    I went to Our Lady of Mount Carmel School on North Hill St/Letitia Street near Park Road.
    At the back of the top playground (behind the reservoir) there is a little fenced off part. It is the remains of Chipping Street. It only has cobble stones and alot of overgrowth, but would be interesting to see if anyone knows if it was a fully functioning street at one time?

    This is from one of the Godfrey maps, Toxteth 1906. I've got all the Liverpool ones and often refer to them. According to the map, Chipping Street is about 600 feet in length

    Hi MissInformed

    Not a picture of Chipping Street as such but there is a photograph of Our Lady of Mount Carmel - High Park Street on Toxteth.net and they note that "Our Lady of Mount Carmel first appears in the 'Liverpool Directory' of 1867 when the address is given as 'Chipping Street, Toxteth Park', . . ." See

    All my best

    thanks for info chris.
    I have seen that on toxteth.net.
    It's a shame there is not a pic of Chipping Street around.
    I have searched Liverpool Records online cataloue too, but doesn't seem to be anything.

    I think I know the bit you mean... no photos though.

    Dave, agree with you on the Godfrey maps - I have most of the Liverpool ones and they're amazing... the differences between then and now are unreal...
