    Default Gateacre Time Capsule



    A time capsule placed above a doorway by two young boys in 1881 has been found during demolition work in Gateacre village.

    The bundle of documents was discovered by a demolition team working at the site of the Gateacre Hall Hotel on Halewood Road. The time capsule had been hidden above the lintel of a door when the building was undergoing building work in the late 19th century.

    I saw it on the news last night. Thought it was brilliant.

    The two kids who left it must have really had their heads screwed on, they filled it with so much information.

    Default Gateacre and Woolton Villages

    THE go-ahead to convert the closed-down flock and felt works in historic Gateacre village into new homes has won approval from Liverpool planning committee.

    The decision angered local residents who had battled for months against the proposals.

    The Grade Two-listed factory building, originally a brewery, dating back to the 1860s, will be refurbished using income from two new apartment blocks at the rear of the site in Gateacre Brow.

    The committee approved the scheme for 22 new apartments after visiting the site to see for themselves the likely impact.

    The felt and flock factory has been in the ownership of the Clegg family for three generations, but finally closed in the 1990s.

    Local residents complained that the development would cause traffic chaos in narrow Sandfield Road, which will be used as an exit point for the new residents.

    The scheme will mean the demolition of two empty buildings next to the landmark original brewery which fronts the street.

    It would also see the main brewery building converted into flats and number 42, Gateacre Brow, once the site manager's house, refurbished, and held by the Clegg family.

    Some protesters said the proposed three-storey apartment blocks would over-dominate the site and cause a loss of privacy.

    Objections were lodged by Garston MP Maria Eagle, local councillors Barbara Mace and Barbara Collinge, the local neighbourhood committee, and Liverpool Save Our City Campaign group.

    Concern was also raised by The Gateacre Society about the number of proposed residential units, 22 in total, that will be created on site.

    The committee was told that the scheme to restore the former brewery would only be viable if the flats were built at the rear.

    Edward Evans, of Dale Mews, said the scheme would pose a danger to life because of the extra traffic it would create.

    He said: "There is so much opposition to this scheme and we just cannot believe they have given it the go-ahead. I was told there is no way we can appeal against the consent being given."

    The scheme will enable residents to enter the new homes site through the traditional gateway to the works close to the Gateacre Brow junction. But they

    will exit into Sandfield Park. The building's owner, Mike Friar, son-in-law of feltmaker Rex Clegg, has been unable to find a buyer for the site. The family drew up a compromise plan, that will secure the one-time brewery.

    Committee chair Cllr Lady Doreen Jones recommended that the plans should be approved, with a scheme to ensure a friendly-neighbour approach by the builders.

    When I was a kid, I lived at Coxhead Farm Gateacre, it stood about where they built the Cats Whisker pub.
    My Saturday treat was a visit to the Woolton Pics. Deadwood D i c k was the hero, what a cliffhanger that was. There was a shop in the village that sold penny ly ices so that was my treat while walking home down Kings Drive.
    This is a picture of the end of the farmhouse, it is the only one I have, I got it from John Williams the MERSEYMOUTH, hia aunt was the caretaker there in later years.

    Belle Vale shopping centre should be demolished and so should most of Belle Vale.

    Never liked that side of Gateacre.

    As far as I know, they are both different areas, obviously very close to each other.

    The stain glass windows in St. Stephens are worth a lot of money. They were made by a famous stainglass window maker.

    Belle Vale and Gateacre are two different area's. Belle Vale is classed as the area 1/2 way down Childwall valley Road (just before the Highwayman Pub) and reaches up by Wheat Hill Road in one direction and Kings Drive in the other.

    Gateacre's original name was Little Woolton and Woolton was once named Much Woolton (and still is by those who knew it as Much Woolton).
