    Default Forgotten/Closed off Streets

    Hi all
    This is my first proper post so be gentle!


    ADVERTISING




    I was going down by Grafton St/Sefton St today and I have been thinking for a few weeks, there are alot of little side streets down there, some blocked off. E.g Crow Street.

    I took 2 pics but they are a bit dark, so sorry about that.

    Perry Street(1) and Crow St (2) the railings one.

    I wondered if anyone else knew of any such streets?

    Default Plevna St off Dingle Mount Liverpool 8

    Excellent idea for a thread. Plevna St has always interested me. It was a short blind ended street off Dingle Mount. It's still there but now used as the entrance to the Liverpool City Mission Church on Dingle Mount. It still has its original rough cobbled surface. See

    http://www.toxteth.net/maps/liverpool/lpool6d.htm

    and

    http://www.toxteth.net/places/liverp...le%20mount.htm

    Plevna St is named after a Balkan City whose fall led the Turks to call for an armistice in the Russian Turkish war of the 1870s ( source Steve Horton: Street Names of the City of Liverpool)

    Part of one of the stubs of Northbrook Street left where it intersects with Granby Street, L8. Northbrook Street used to run from Kingsley Road through to Princes Avenue (where there's also a similar stub of it still remaining).

    And here it is in an old A-Z:
