    Default Sport and Recreation Heritage

    Peeps, lets get this thread going places again.

    Now we've developed a healthy taste for photography, can we please get out and about looking for buildings, sporting venues, structures, road names plus other clues and indicators to Liverpool's rich sport and recreation heritage past.

    Please include any older images from various sources too, old gymnasiums, sporting venues etc...

    Here's the earliest example of evidence of sport, Robin Hoods Stone (Booker Avenue) - 8ft tall. The grooves face the sun, we can assume that the Arches did their sharpening with their backs to the sun!!

    Default Grand National

    Aintree Racecourse is the home of the world's most celebrated, most talked about, most magical race, the Martell Cognac Grand National. No other racecourse can compare to the sheer romance of Aintree. The mere mention of the name conjures up memories of triumph and tragedy, of battle and bravery, of victory and conquering the odds.

    Today, Aintree Racecourse is one of the most sophisticated, forward thinking sporting venues in the world. It holds the richest National Hunt Race in Europe and attracts TV audiences worldwide of around 600 million. Only figures like these speak for the sheer passion the race evokes on a global basis.

    Brings a lot of money in for Liverpool.

    It must be a nightmare to live round that way at the National weekend.

    Its not that bad actually, apart from the police helicopter patrolling the course throughout the night checking on all the fences its relatively unchanged for us. Plus we do get a b.o.g.o.f on tickets for the Saturday and its great being able to walk across the road to home when its freezing

    Nice to hear Jeredin. Just when you read the letters pages in the Echo, people write in complaining of all the cars parking in residential areas. Suppose its no worse than what happens round Anfeild and Goodison on matchdays.

    The way i see it is that everyone who moved into those houses knew full well what they were moving next to so should have been prepared for that.
    They build a great big temporary stand just 5 foot away from my garden and people peer over my fence from it but i wouldnt complain about it as its all part and parcel of living so close to what is the envy of the world on Grand national day and you get to watch the races, hear the cheers and groans, smell the cider and hotdogs and soak up the atmosphere all from our own back windows in the warm
