    Default Cavaliers in South Liverpool?

    I know that Liverpool Castle was lost to Prince Rupert "the Mad Cavalier" in the civil war of the mid 1600's but does anyone know of any historical info about Liverpool's occupation during that time? I'm particularly trying to find evidence for Cavalier activity in or around the Woolton area.

    Cheers.

    Hello researchwriter

    Apparently there was a skirmish at Bloody Acre in Childwall during the Civil War. See

    The Gay Cavalier Garston, many a skirmish there in the 60s could not resist.

    What a shame that pub went and is now an exhaust garage.
