    I'll have to do another bike ride up to Woolton. Best place in Liverpool to go around.

    I mostly just go to the Tesco and back since theirs barely any lines .

    Most of them go to the Allerton one.

    Not sure if you mean what sort of building or the name, but it's a block of flats near Park Street - don't know what it was called.

    That is Chatsworth St and that is Entwistle Heights, a nice building, which has been blown down.

    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no

    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    The block near Park St, on Mill St, is Mill View.

    Hmm, nice? Was it a council tower? If so then I'm sure the occupants views

    differed, did you live there? I'd actually love for all or most of the tower blocks around merseyside to still be around because they add to the skyline and

    make a city look bigger than it really is. But they're no good for living in, no community, hallways/stairs/lifts stink of piss, half filled with

    smackheads. Thats my experience of one tower block in Everton but I'm quite sure it was consistent throughout the city.

    You describe these schools as boarding schools. The difference between

    Board scools and boaeding schools is that pupils live on the premises in boarding schools. Board schools they did not live in, they were school run by the

    school board or education authority, other schools were contolled by churches.

    Yes, there is a difference, thanks for the heads up

    All the tower blocks of the 1960s were owned by the Council.
    I was once offered a flat in one in

    Kirkby, but didn't take it, & I've never lived in one.
    The B & W photo is Chatsworth Street (I got it wrong) and that is Entwistle Heights.
    Here it

    is in 1986, just before it was demolished.

    I know this thread is about schools.
    I've just looked, and have a few photos of demolished schools

    which I'll post.

    Hi M8, do you have one of Roscoe

    Garsefield Rd? I believe it's now an old folks home. It's near Broadway.

    If anyone has a picture of Gateacre village church school I would appreciate it. I don't think it is

    used as a school anymore.

    Is this it?
    I did a Google search for gateacre school (2 separate words).
    I don't know Gateacre - I don't think they'd let

    me in!
