    Great idea.

    Could we have close-ups and the whole building please?

    I know where there's a beast and a date, together.
    Not far from me.
    I'll snap it tomorrow.

    Hi Kev

    Glad you like the idea of this thread. Years ago I did some pencil drawings of old local datestones for a projected history book I was going to write. I was just a teenager at the time. Another datestone worth photographing is on Springwood Cottages, Brocklebank Lane and Mather Avenue, the date "1684" enclosed in a heart with initials. "The Cottage" on Springwood Avenue, south of Allerton Hall, has the date "1639" above the main door. Also the house known as "The Three Sixes" on Aigburth Road near Aigburth Vale at the entrance to Fulwood Park and opposite the gates of Sefton Park: the datestone states "1666" and gave the name to the house. An old photograph of the house appears in Robert Griffiths' The History of the Royal and Ancient Park of Toxteth Liverpool (1907). I think the old date stone of the original Brook House is set in the wall of the bowling green of the present Brook House on Smithdown Road. It is also pictured in Griffiths' book.

    I suppose the ultimate date is on the gate of 'Park Lodge'...AD 1207. I'm not sure what, if any, is original in this building, though.

    Hi Marky

    Certainly the date on the gate "1207" is based on the designation in Robert Griffiths' history of Toxteth as the "Higher Lodge" of King John but whether such a lodge was actually built in 1207 at that spot or sometime during the middle ages appears unknown. I somehow think 1207 was a bit early for the house to be built. As you probably know there are pictured bits and pieces of slabs of sandstone that were supposedly from the facade of the original lodge photographed on the lawn of the house shown in Griffiths' book (p. 26).

    I have started another thread on Toxteth Park Higher and Lower Lodges where I speak in detail about both lodges.
