    Default Wavertree - Edge Hill Areas

    Wavertree - One of Liverpool's most historic areas, possibly dating back to the stone age. Flint arrow heads and burial urns have been found here. There used to be a lake, where the children's playground is now, they filled it in for a playground!!

    I'll start with the Wavertree Round House and Lock up. Once used as an over night lock up for drunks, used in 1832 as a mortuary for cholera victims.

    Just up the hill from the playground, if you drive up Mill Lane you might miss it, walk up and you will see it. This is not the original site, it was moved years ago when the area was built up. You can get the full history from the Wavertee society site, it is a very interesting site and well worth a look.

    There's something in the grounds of St Mary's Walton church .. a monks well or a Saxon well - not sure, but very old! I did see it many years ago and it was covered by undergrowth then. Don't know what state it's in now.

    Exclamation

    The Monks' Well Wavertree - over 570 years old? The latin

    inscription reads - 'He who does not give what he has, the Devil smiles below.' Tunnels are believd to have ran from it to Childwall and

    Sandown.

    Default Druids Cross Rd Wavertree or Allerton

    Taffy Quote:
    Wavertree is a delightful area and is really much more than the historic High Street area. Did you know the original Wavertree township extended as far as Druid's Cross Rd? I only wish the whole of the High St street could have an aesthetic make over to remove much of the 20th C over enthusiastic use of garish paint and signs. Here are a few photos I took a couple of years ago including one of the now lost, due to vandalism, pillar box on Sandown Lane End Quote

    Max quote When did Druid's Cross become part of Allerton? End Quote


    Druids Cross Rd was never in Allerton and isn't today. The township boundary between Wavertree and Woolton runs down the middle of Druid's Cross Road. The Allerton boundary runs down the middle of Green Lane , then skirts along Calderstones Rd. There's even an old Council sign saying "Allerton" at the junction of Menlove Ave and Crompton's lane. Yes this sign is in the right place but then its been there many years. Interestingly there is a boundary stone marker in Green Lane, Mossley Hill marking the separation of Wavertree from Allerton
