    Default Crosby

    Just wondered why no one was talking about the slightly further afield parts of liverpool like Crosby etc. I grew up in Crosby and it is every bit as much a part of liverpool as Toxteth and Garston etc.

    I think Crosby is great though, cus we are so on the edge of the city it has almost villagey feel to the place. Can't walk down a street without meeting someone you know.
    I wonder if he'll make me crawl. I wonder how far I might fall. I'm stuck beneath my skin I don't know who to blame for this mess I'm in. Involuntarily falling to my knees another victim of heart disease. Another Night without a dark tunnel, stay in bed so I can't be stolen. And everything revolves around the fear of my fate. Everyday a little closer to death.

    20 odd years ago, I made a point of visiting all the sites of former cinemas in Liverpool and taking photos.
    The Regent in Crosby, then a bingo hall, was the only place where somebody came out and objected to me taking photos (Silly man!).
    It's now a sports hall for a local school.

    Welcome to the forum, MissD.

    Hello Miss D

    My late Auntie Mary used to live at 28 Water Street in Thornton so I have an interest in your neck of the woods. I have photographed the windmill tower on Moor Lane in Great Crosby in the past as well. Actually a search on "Crosby" does turn up posts where Crosby has been discussed so follow that link and add to the threads as you see fit.

    I know I did look but I was a bit miffed that we weren't in the Urban Districts seeing as that is what we are ^_^''

    What tends to happen on the forum is that people start threads about the area they were born in or currently living in.
    There are still lots more districts not covered yet, or some existing threads have very little input on them.

    I'd like to see more on Crosby too - it's a lovely area.
