    Default Wavertree Park / The Mystery

    I've got this park virtually on my doorstep so in the few years I've lived here I've had a few snaps across the seasons. There was a cracking picture in the Daily Post on their Daily Postcard a few weeks ago, with the park covered in snow and some mist on the ground, with the Anglican cathedral in the background. Here's a selection of mine...

    What happened to the Liverpool Show? There's still an RAC road sign up the road for the "Liverpool Show Public" carpark which I assume is the Kwik Save/Netto one. I remember it being on a few years ago but haven't seen it since I moved to the park.

    Thanks for the link too, I'd just assumed it was always an open space, interesting bit of history there!

    Why didn't you punch your arm through the window and grabbed one of their throats like serial killers do when punching through doors?

    As a Blue Coat boy we had to do cross country runs round the Mystery,a absolute nightmare. Everyone would make the mistake of going tearing off down the slope then would be near death by the time we'd run along a flat bit then had to come back up the slope again.

    Hi Iain and Gerrard

    Wonderful photographs, Iain, many thanks. Gerrard, thanks also for the link to the webpage on "The Mystery" on the Historic Wavertree website -- I wondered where the name "The Mystery" came from and it apparently originated from the anonymous donor who gave the land who was a "mystery." Very interesting.
