    Default Liverpool's Original Seven Streets

    I've got a meet next week at The Athenaeum about a project called Liverpool's Original Seven Streets. Gardens (Paul) heard that you have offered your services doing the film shoots in this project. Look forward to meeting up some time

    Any info and photos of the streets below would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Castle Street, Dale Street, Bank Street, Juggler Street, Chapel Street, Moor Street and Whiteacre Street; three of these have kept their original name to the present day, Castle Street, Chapel Street and Dale Street.
    Bank Street (Water Street) formed the southern upright of the H, running past the site of the present town hall into Dale Street.
    The northern upright of the H consisted of Chapel Street, which continued into Moor Street (Tithebarn Street), these were connected in the middle by Juggler Street (High Street) which ran south into Castle Street, and north into Whiteacre Street (Old Hall Street).
    There were two crosses in Juggler Street, the High cross at the junction with Dale Street and the White Cross at the junction with Chapel Street

    David Charters from the Echo will be interviewing Brenda Murray (Liverpool History Society) in the Athenaeum next Wednesday, so expect an article about the seven streets next week.

    I received an email from Pat today, a website has been created for the project;

    http://www.liverpools7streets.co.uk/

    It only lists the street at the moment, keep an eye on it for updates.

    I registered it last week. Hopefully there'll be something on it when I return from Liverpool later this week.

    Hiya Dave. I think we met briefly at the Little Italy plaque unveiling (the 2nd one on the Pontack Wall) - it was afterwards in the Bishop Goss (st. Joey's) old school dinner hall where they were serving tea and biccies. Pat has been in touch with me also and I eargerly await the site being fully up and running and will see if I can contribute to it. Well done.

    Hiya Ged,
    I remember that. I really wanted to have a good chat with you, but I was looking after my mum at the time who was badly ill and couldn't stay too long. Sadly she passed away 11 days later on the 27th Feb.

    A load of us had an Echo interview with David Charters in The Athenaeum yesterday afternoon. He told us that it will go out Feb 3rd. He asked me for other website links relating to the 7 original streets. Checked out Yo

    I'm a bit late in answering, but what sort of information was required?
    The story of the 7 streets is basically the story of Liverpool.

    BTW, I don't want to sound like a "know-it-all", but I don't think Old Hall Street was called Whiteacre Street. I know what book that info came from, but most other sources say it used to be Mill Street or Mylne Lane (from the Mylne/Mill next to it).

    These 3 maps are from one of Fritz Spiegl's packs.

    Not to worry. It's all been sorted. I was hoping to add some contributions from Yo. Thanks anyway

    Dave, you asked for photos and info, regarding the 7 streets.
    It's just too wide a subject to know just what to give you.

    Regarding the photos, it's just 7 nearby streets, Phil. I photographed them all within an hour and an half this afternoon, including shooting some Dale Street/Water Street shots from the roof of Martins Bank.
