    Thumbs up *Liverpool History* The Ladies Walk to the Coal Bunker #Liverpool #History #Nostalgia #Throwback

    From “Ladies Walk” to Coal Bunker.

    According to Edward Baines, in his book, History of the County Palatine and Duchy of Lancaster (1836), there were two ‘Ladies Walks’ in Liverpool: one parallel to Duke Street and another just off Old Hall Street, opposite Old Leeds Street.



    This is an account of the second.
    “… at the end of Old Hall-street was formally a fine walk called “The Ladies’ Walk,” with a double row of trees on each side, very much frequented by respectable inhabitants, and especially by merchants, who found it a good post of observation from which to observe the approach of their vessels to the port. The direction of the walk was towards the shore, where it terminated in a flight of steps opposite the old baths. The destruction of this beautiful walk, with the fine avenue of trees, was cause of great lamentation at the time; and the whole site is now occupied by coal yards, while the baths, and the fort to which it conducted, have all been swallowed up by the Regent’s Dock [later renamed “Princes Dock”].”
    Interestingly, the Ladies Walk led straight to the Old Baths on Bath Street.
