    Bootle or Benidorm ?

    Tricky Dickie or Sticky Vicky ?


    The Bootle blocks all have these zany markings to break up the monotony of the bland concrete. Personally, these ones remind me of the run down hi-rise in Los Cristianos, Tenerife - where the locals live.

    I've taken ones of those Knowsley Heights too Tony, still gotta upload them yet, not as good as yours though - hint - hint....

    Still gotta do the two sets of three in Dave's old haunt - Canny Farm.

    My Huyton ones are from a short distance - there were some kids knocking about with batons of wood - better safe than sorry.

    Ged, the Canny ones you see from the M57 are close to my old local, The Tithebarn. Jeez! There was some barnies in there mate!

    BTW, as a kid, we used to play on top of the lifts in the flats on the precinct. We pressed the lift to go down a floor and open up the door just as it was descending. We'd jump on top of the lift and switch it to manual. Had no idea what a stupid dangerous game we were playing until a lad got killed

    Whooosh that was dangerous and as you say, a lad paid with his life.

    I have relatives in Boode Croft (originally from Conway st and then St. George's Heights) and have had a few scoops in the Tithebarn with them and another, it is the thatcher or something?

    The six blocks are, as you'll know, Mosscraig, Firscraig, Whincraig and Tarncliffe, Merecliff, Denecliff.

    Ged, we lived in Barons Hey, so geographically, the Black Angus was my local. Used to have a few bevvies in the Thatcher as well. I think it got burnt down a few years back. Thanks for naming the flats, I'd forgotten all of them.

    The things u do as kids eh? We used to play on the rails of The Northern Line by Garston Station and would often cross the line. We would also place coins on the rails and retreat to the top of the embankment watching the trains flatten the coins. Walking a distance along side the tracks was always exciting when u knew the train times....

    Of course that all stopped when a mate was killed when he touched the third rail.

    Kev, when we lived in Halewood for a couple of years, we used to do the same thing with coins on the railway line that separated our estate from Ford's factory

    Default high rise flats

    Hi you guys, who,s following who round Liverpool. I used to live in Desmond Street, the corner of Breck Rd and Heyworth St. then I moved to St Georges Heights for seven years, great time there. Then to Cannibal Farm where I lived in Denecliffe for awhile. I enjoyed my time there too, drank in the Black Angus once I think, but if you didn,t have a broken nose you weren,t welcome so I never went again. I used to love my high rise flats. 19 floor in St georges. We could see the cars at night travelling along the roads in Wales, and the lightship at the bar. My neighbour used our balcony to get into his house when he forgot his key once. God I was scared as he put his leg over the balcony.

    Chippie mate, 19th floor in St George's! I envy you. I can just imagine the views!
    They were a tightly knit bunch in the Black Angus.

    By the way, on match days at Anfield, the back room of the Sandon is taken over by the Canny Farm lads.

    Thanks Ged. Yep it's from St Mary's. Found this one too. It's the last remaining flats on Sheil Road. The upper right is Runcorn Bridge.

    Found another of the Piggeries on the English Herritage site. Not sure what year it is, and I don't recognise that long road. I can't see William Henry Street either. I assume the buildings on the right of the pic lead up to Shaw Street and were demolished.

    Hello Terry Lad..the long Road is Haigh St,
    The photo would have been taken near/opposite the entrance to SFX Church on Langsdale St.
