    Great stuff! That's in Aintree isn't it? It's used now by a car breakers. I had to go there to get a new window for my old car (don't park in Stockport...) about a year ago, and turned the corner and was amazed by what I saw!

    That place must've been amazing in it's heydey. I'm glad a lot of the buildings have survived, although I do wish it was all abandoned so I could sniff round there without being hassled!

    That was a bit further down near the bus sheds on Aintree industrial estate near Taskers.The loop line runs past both there and Hartleys hill.

    A 1977 view of the gate in Dave's first photo. It was taken by the Walton Times and is located in Crosby Library.

    Thanks for the pic Ged. Couldn't remember whether that building to the right of the pic was still standing when I took mine, so I go looking for my Hartley pics....and I can't find them now! Doin' my head in mate! I'll have another look later on.

    I wonder if any of the lilies set could be seen from the loop line ?

    Mind you, I suppose not. Doubt if they would leave it open to prying eyes and vandals.

    Golly Dave, I was looking for this one after seeing your great pics, I somehow went straight to it, how 'jammy' is that?

    A wonderful place and the people who live in Hartley's Village stick up for it with such enthusiasm.

    Good that people are seeing it in terms of the loop line path.

    By road it's on the edge of everywhere - what made it a dogfight venue. From the path it is in the middle of everywhere. There are those who knock the sustrans path but I think it's great and turns your thinking inside-out.

    You could see the set from the loop-line.
    It was weird because I often go past there then one day I noticed these old houses....It was all carboard like at the back of them so it soon became obvious it was a film set.
    I went over and got as far as the front of the building then was stopped by security who wouldn't take a bribe.

    Reagarding Hartleys...
    There's a pidgeon food shop as well as piano's and sheds plus dodgy little lock ups/fly by nites.It's become a dumping ground.Fly tippers love it.
