    Default The Old Brook House

    Only source I can find on It although how dare It associates my area with the ghetto.

    Says the corner of Lidderdale but was It the corner where the old stables are?

    Hi Max

    As noted on toxteth.net on the page you cited, the old Brook House is discussed in Richard Griffiths' The History of the Royal and Ancient Park of Toxteth. As Griffiths describes, the datestone from the original Brook House of 1754 that stood at the corner of Lidderdale Road and Smithdown Road was at one time in the wall of the bowling green of the later pub, though as Toxteth.net notes, it wasn't seen on a recent visit. This is possibly something I can investigate when I am in the 'Pool May 15-21 or something you can check out in the meanwhile before I arrive on the scene. Let me know, Max.

    All my best

    The bowling green Is now the Car Park and Beer Garden I think.

    So was It exactly where the datestone Is then because that wouldn't be on the corner of Lidderdale otherwise?

    Hi Max,

    To clarify, the datestone from the earlier Brook House was saved and put in the brick wall of the bowling green of the later pub to the east of the original location.

    When I first came to Liverpool it was the Finch & Firkin and what a brilliant pub it was. Since it became It's A Scream I've gone right off it. Shame

    Too many students go to It too.

    I've always known It as the Brookhouse though due to the words always on the building.
