    Kev is it true that to get In or out of Garston you have to pass under a railway bridge? someone told me that.

    It's a good subject, Gnomie, but curious about when a bridge becomes a tunnel.

    You can go right through Garston (via St Mary's Road) without going under a bridge.

    Found this foot tunnel running between the rear of newsham park and new street, just at the side of the old mental health hospital.

    When I was a kid we used to run through that tunnel making a lot of noise because it had weird acoustics. Going from the park there used to be a public toilet on the right just before you went in, the stink was awful even when you just went past. There used to be bowling greens there too, I noticed when I visited last year that they had gone, There is a picture on here somewhere of the windmill that stood by the lake when I was a kid too, I can't remember which thread it was in.

    No, the track above is still in use. It's the freight line from Edge Hill to Seaforth.
