    Default Edge Lane Demolition.

    Passing through the Holt rd/Edge lane junction,I was surprised at how much demolition had taken place,since I was last there! There's only one corner untouched,which is St.Cyprian's church,which I presume, isn't going to come down,even though it's closed?? They're really cracking on with it,and it seems to involve a fair few of the adjoining streets! It reminds me of those pic's of the mass demolitions in the 60's,in Everton,etc.

    Dont know if the old police/fire station is going,but looks like the Bethel church is! Arnside st pictured,only has a couple of occupants left, but further along is an example of the new housing,which looks like an improvement,especially with all the greenery!(Anyone have any idea who Chris Ward is?as he's had a road named after him!)

    Not sure if I should thank you for posting those pictures or not ;-) I haven't been down Edge Lane since they were just starting to pull stuff down, and hadn't seen the devastation before...

    I wonder if Chris Ward had something to do with Edge Hill College. Those 1980s(?) houses are built on the site where Edge Hill College was before it moved out to Ormskirk (in 1933 I think).

    The area round the Shipperies and the Fire Station has been down for a few months. I took some photos of it then, and compared the view now and then on my blog using photos from Google Street View.

    I go up and down Edge Lane all the time - and they certainly did knock down everything very quickly. Personally I am very annoyed that all the Victorian houses etc have gone - for a road! However having said that, people who lived in the houses actually on Edge Lane suffered horrendous noise and pollution.

    With regards to St Cyprians - there is an order on it - so that's saved as are the houses to the side of the church.

    The Liverpool Lime St to Wigan line is to be electrified and looks like being brought into Merseyrail. It runs a parallel to the M62 and Edge Lane. The mini-motorway along the Strand and to Leeds St, a part of the old silly Shankland plan, is to link up with this ridiculous unneeded road system.

    The money should have been spent on recommissioning the Wapping tunnel from Edge Hill to Central station and Kings Dock Then people use rapid-transit to get from the east of the city to the main city centre points within minutes. Then no need for ugly polluting roads and needless demolition.

    I would sack people in Merseytravel for all this nonsense. The answers are there waiting.
