    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

    http://toxteth.net/places/liverpool/...t%20carmel.htm

    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...

    That's the little street behind the church and Admiral Stree Police Station - you can get your wedding pics taken in the little garden behind Lady Mount when you get married there.

    yeah, the garden behind the church...memories!

    I remember the teachers used to let us clean the rubbish out of Chipping Street for a treat on a Friday afternoon, and we used to actually argue to be the chosen ones!! how sad were we??

    Default Chipping Street

    Yes Chipping Street, was the street, that ran along the top of our street (Hodges Mount). Remember the cobbles well, we used to burst the tar bubbles in between them with ly ice sticks on the hot summer days....ohhh they were the days

    Didn't Bouverie Street - which ran into Chipping Street from High Park Street - have those waist-high posts to stop through traffic?...and wasn't it 'unadopted'?

    First time I've seen a mention of Bouverie st.
    my aunty & uncle lived there. We used to visit a lot. Would love to see a photo of Bouverie street to refresh my memory. It was demolished many years ago. ( the street - not my memory !)

    Default Bouverie st.

    Yes it did and yes it was unadopted.

    It also had coble stones the full length of the road.

    We used to cut through there on our way to Princess Park. (just a bit of useless information hee hee)

    Funny thing is, I don't ever remember walking down Bouverie St, even though I must have passed the top of it hundreds of times. The rear of the 'new' police station in Admiral St. would be were it existed. Appropriate really, because in the 1891 census, out of the 23 houses 3 were occupied by rozzers.

    Dave.

    I think there were a few of us who used to do that....but always alone . I always treated my 'horse' fairly, never asking him to do anything I wouldn't do myself.

    I noticed a few of Mount Carmel on this 1973 flickr set. Are any of the streets you're looking for on there?

    Default Our lady of Mount Carmel/Hodges Mount

    Thank you Ged,

    Some wonderful pictures of Our lady of Mount Carmel. However, haven't come across Hodges Mount yet . But I am sure it will turn up one day along with all the other old streets from the area.

    Thanks again.

    Kindest Wishes

    Ged, thanks for that Bouverie st pic. When I was a kid I used to go with my mum or nan most weeks to visit an aunty & uncle. Have never seen a photo of the street since. Thanks
    Not sure if my aunty & uncles house is showing on the pic - will ask my mum to see if she recognises it.

    You're both welcome Dave and Lindy. Having pretty much got everything out of the records office for myself now (until the next time I think of something), I took a list of those streets that forumers here and elsewhere were looking for. If you can't enlarge those pics to full screen let me know and i'll upload again using imageshack.

    re Bouverie st; anyone who knew the area well - is the pic taken from Chipping st end or the other end ?
    My relatives lived nearer to Chipping st end. I'll have to find out from my elderly aunt if she remembers the corner shop which is on that photo.
