    Default Tuebrook House, built 1615

    Tue Brook House, 695 West Derby Road, Liverpool was built in 1615 as a farmhouse. It is now owned by Liverpool City Council and must be the city's most unusual council house. It is thought to have been originally owned by John Mercer, a yeoman farmer and during the Victorian period was the home and workshop of a Mr.Fletcher, a wheelwright. Some parts of the building contain sections of it's original "wattle and daub" construction, which can be seen through glass panels.



    As it is today:

    Great to see, AK1! Thanks for the pics and information. I visited Tuebrook House years ago as a lad in the early Sixties, having cycled up from Mossley Hill, and was able to go through the house and feel its age. Good to know the Liverpool City Council now owns the property and presumably will protect it.

    Moss Cottage you are thinking of, about 5 years ago a health centre was built right at the back of it which really spoils the look of it.
