    Default Scotland Road and Kirkdale Area

    I work for the Scottie Press and we are looking for items of local interest for our paper and website. Has your eldest won a scholarship to Oxford is your gran 101, local pub teams won a cup, outings, charity events anything and everything that may be of local interest. Pictures old and new are also most welcome. I can be contacted at
    crogan@scottiepress.org and I welcome contributions from young and old alike, anything will be looked at although I cannot guarantee that I will be able to publish everything. It's not the *** after all.
    Thanks

    To keep on topic, This morning I drove up Fountains Road and saw my old local the Kendal Castle had just been demolished along with what was left of the school.

    Lot's of people lined Westminster Rd crying their eyes out.

    Yes oddsocks, I should imagine that the 3 letter word, (which in our house is a swear word) does have something to do with the Hillsborough events.

    The Kendall has been gone for a year or so now. The whole Easby estate is coming down for new housing. I learned to swim in Wessy Road baths and saw Everton stay up in the old bill pub (ex bridewell) when locked out the game at 2.20pm.

    My mum was born in Fountains Road Kirkdale, back in the early 1900s. She was from a large family.(Which were usual in those days) They lived in a large victorian house. She used to have to clean/whiten the steps outside the front door, this was her chore. That she had to do. Her father was a stoker on The Lusitania, so her mum or ma, as she called her. Depended on her older sons to help out alot, whilst her husband was away at sea.

    All over Liverpool famous old watering holes have, or are being demolished. The Town Planners have gone berserk, they're tearing the place down.
    Big empty spaces are all that's left of old neighbourhoods. Old timers knew these spaces as the Debris or Bomdies it's a reference to the blitz.

    Fonthill road runs from Fountains road , through to Melrose Road .. Rumney Road cuts across it too .. My little girls dad was born in North Dingle , his Mother was born in Fountains road , i remember sitting on their step with his aunties and his mum , when was little , they used to mind me while my dad went for a pint with his mates ..

    I remember Fountains road, as my brother lived in Freeland Street when I was young, so I was always in the Walton area. I know my mum lived near the bottom of Fountains Road, not Walton Road end, but dont know whereabouts or the number of the house.

    Sorry, but I don't get it either: the implication (if we are talking about that newspaper) is that that organ 'publishes everything'. Shome mishtake, shurely?

    Sorry dont know your first name, however its nice to know you have taken over the mantle of a good informative local paper, I'm sure you will get good snippets of interest from the forum members, Scotland Road and the Vauxhall and Kirkdale areas always topics of interest. I drove down Vauxhall Road yesterday , what are they digging up near to the Eldonian estate ,(Old T&L site) , I know lots of locals asking the same question.

    Good Luck,

    This is probably a dead easy question for most ppl on here. I was on the bus back to bootle from town today and just before the Wallasey tunnel entrance there's a white building with arched windows set back from the road. Looks like it's had it's top chopped off too. Was it a church ? if not then what was it ?

    Ok it's not white but it's this building

    It was a school,at one time,though I've no idea what it was called (Ged!!!)!If you go around the corner to the right,it still has "boy's entrance" over a blocked up doorway! I don't think that was it's last use though,as I can vaguely remember walking past it,in the late 60's,and there was a sign referring to civil defence?

    In 1848 it was Bevington Bush School. The doorway and side entrance is shown both on the map and the Google Streetview photo. Ged may have some photo's of it on innercityliving?

    Also, Bevington Bush Baths [on the corner of Paul Street] by 1906 had become "St. Saviour's Refuge."

    Good stuff Dazza! That's the front,the doorway(s) are just around the corner! Sounds like it's had several uses in it's time,till it became some sort of building depot/lorry park? The swimming baths were known as Burrough's baths,and was only demolished fairly recently.The memorial plaque from the building is stored at the "Sylvestrian" club,down the road!(that's what I was told,anyway?)

    Hi Steve, I think you're right. This looks like a secondary entrance.

    Ha, I can just imagine their little faces looking out the window waiting for the school bell to go?

    This has got me thinking about the piece of land more or less, next to where the baths were.It's on Scotland rd. itself,and is surrounded by railings,but there's nothing there now? (unless they've built some flat's!)

    Ged, do you have any photos of Bevington Bush School. See post#20.

    The name of the school is St Bridgets which I attended for a short while back in the olden days.

    It was originally North Corporation School.





    However, here is a new book, out just this week with dozens of glossy pics of the Scottie Road area and well worth it.
