    Come on,let's have some dates then! Calderstones, are, probably the oldest remains,of a structure,but they've been moved several times,and I was thinking of things that are reasonably identifiable,by most of us,(any pic's?)and still in original position!


    Hi Robbo,how's things?

    No date for Hunt's Cross.
    Monks well is said to be about 600yrs old.
    Woolton Cross is thought to have been erected by the Knights Hospitaller (Lost Villages of Liverpool part 2 by Derek Whale)
    There is reference to the cross being there in 1600.The Knights had land in Wulveton (Woolton) in 1189.(History of Much Woolton,The Woolton Society,1975)
