The earliest reference to Childwall is to be found in the Doomsday Book, which was compiled by William I in 1086 .
This building is very old and probably sits on the site of an even older pub. It used to contain a collection of autographs including Queen Victoria, King of Hanover and The Duke of Wellington. It has been a tradition over the years for newly wed couples to inscribe their names in the windows of Childwall Abbey.
It is also said to be haunted with many strories of ghost sitings. The old photograph below was taken and later was found to contain a figure in the (middle) window that was said to have been a ghost.
Many thanks to Bri and Beryl for alowing me in, very hospitable
