    Default Boxing Ring.....

    hope I am on the right thread page for this but does any one remember a boxing ring that was in a road running from Old Hall Street to the road that the David Lewis Northern was on....sorry I cannot remember the name of the road the hospital was on....having a senior moment I 'm afraid.....

    At least I am sure it was a boxing ring.....but I remember walking past it from the train Station..Moorfields....to the hospital on my way back from visiting the family in Crosby as I lived in the nurses home at the Northern....this would have been 1976-1978

    Sorry if I am confused with my bearings..been away such a long time.....

    It's got to be the Stadium in St Paul's Square, at the end of Bixteth Street.

    Scroll down this thread for a couple of photos:

    Thanks for that but it doesnt look like I am picturing it....there was nothing else on this little street except the building......I used to get off the train at Moorfields....turn r and instead of going down Old Hall Street past St Pauls Eye Hospital and then r to the Northern I used to take a short cut through a little road that had this arena/ring in it.... if you walked past it the road led you straight tot he front of the main entrance to the hospital.......

    I'm sorry to repeat myself, but there was only one boxing arena in Liverpool, and I've directed you to photos of it.
