A few months ago, Tom Slemen on his forum wrote about ghosts associated with Bloody Acre in Childwall, perhaps due to a Civil War battle being held at the spot:
"On the evening of Wednesday 22 February, 2006, at around 9pm, Gemma and Callum, two 15-year-olds, were walking up Score Lane in Childwall when they heard a bloodcurdling female scream. The teenagers looked about but could see no one in distress. Callum walked on, escorting his girlfriend home, but upon reaching the junction at Rocky Lane, another sound was heard which sounded like a large crowd brawling somewhere in the distance. In the midst of this inexplicable riot of sound, the same female scream – then the unearthly cacophony ended. Callum took his girlfriend home, and as he returned to his home he passed Rudston Junior and Infants school, the teenager heard the same baffling sounds of uproar and commotion, punctuated by the same spine-chilling scream he’s heard earlier with Gemma. This time, an elderly man walking his dog up Okehampton Road also heard the sound as well. At my office in Rodney Street I have several reports on file of strange sounds in the Score Lane area, including an account of cannons being fired one evening in 1976. My own theory is that the sounds are the ghostly re-enactments of a past battle on Score Lane. The field that runs alongside All Saints Church in Childwall has a very sinister reputation, and Score Lane runs through part of the site. For centuries this area has been known as 'Bloody Acre' and it seems whatever happened there, a lot of lives were lost. Local historians originally thought Bloody Acre might be a reference to a Civil War battle, or perhaps a skirmish from the days of the Reformation, but it would seem that something more sinister went on in the area of Score Lane in times past, and perhaps it still echoes down the centuries to the present day."
Another location that has been tentatively associated with a battle is Bromborough on the Wirral, which some historians have thought might have been the site of the Battle of Brunanburh of AD 937. Although it is by no means proven, researchers at Nottingham University believe the battle between the combined forces of Vikings from Dublin and Scots from Strathclyde fought against the English on Bebington Heath near Bromborough, and not near the River Humber as it has been suggested. The English won the battle.
