    Thanks for this, Kev. I knew that Joseph N. Walker was the man who enclosed in the ancient Calderstones in a circle in a circular enclosure in 1845 but I had not for some reason associated him with Calderstones House.

    I found this on-line:

    "ALLERTON, a township, in the parish of Childwall, union and hundred of West Derby, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 5ľ miles (S. E.) from Liverpool; containing in 1846 about 800 inhabitants. At the time of the Domesday survey, three thanes held "Alretune;" which was in the possession of Geoffrey de Chetham in the reign of Henry III., and of the Lathoms in that of Henry VIII. It was sold in 1670 to the Percivals, who in 1732 sold it to the Hardmans; and from them it was purchased by Messrs. Clegg and Roscoe. The township comprises 1531 acres, and consists partly of a luxuriant vale, and partly of gentlyrising hills, which command fine views of the river Mersey at its widest part, with portions of Cheshire and North Wales. The air is salubrious, and the scenery adorned with wood; the soil is of various quality, in some parts sandy, and in others a stiff clay. Allerton Hall was until 1816 the residence of William Roscoe, the elegant historian of Leo X., and is now the seat of Pattison Ellames, Esq.: the apartments contain numerous valuable paintings, and a beautiful marble statue of Sappho, by John Gibson, of Rome. Wyncote is the residence of Joseph Shipley, Esq.; and Allerton Priory, of Theodore Woolman Rathbone, Esq. Here is a large Druidical monument called Calder Stones, in digging round which, more than sixty years ago, urns of coarse clay were found, containing human bones: the stones were surrounded with a neat iron palisade in 1845; and not far distant is the residence of Joseph N. Walker, Esq., named, after them, Calderstones. There is a quarry of red sandstone. The tithes have been commuted for £228 payable to the lessee of the Bishop of Chester, and £43 payable to the vicar of the parish. A church was erected in 1848, at a cost of £5000, by James Holme, Esq.; it is in the early English style, with a tower and spire, and, standing on rising ground, is a picturesque and commanding object. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of Mr. Holme.

    From: 'Allerthorpe - Allonby', A Topographical Dictionary of England (1848), pp. 37-39. URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/rep...x?compid=50751.

    Thanks, Kev. The first one looks like another view of Childwall Hall. The last one is surely Allerton Hall in Clark's Gardens known today for the "Pub in the Park" (must go there next time I am in Liverpool), once the seat of William Roscoe.

    All the best

    Kev, thanks so much for posting these images. Would these buildings have survived.

    I was wondering the same thing whilst driving through Springwood yesterday. I can only assume that if the buildings had survived then they areas would feel similar to Springwood due to the buildings that still stand there today, if you get what I mean....

    Yes exactly. Most of the Liverpool old mansions fell prey to the demolition instincts of both the speculative builder and Liverpool City Council housing department.

    Yes, it is.
    If you hover your mouse over the thumbnails, the descriptions come up.

    Excellent, Kev.
    Thanks also for the maps.

    Allerton Hall was where the top naval men of the US Confederacy would meet to plan their naval strategy against the north.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    So they do! Thanks, Philip. I especially like the one of Otterspool with the view of the Mersey in the distance.

    Very similar to the Dingle Estate, which was so picturesque the Yates' sisters allowed the public in two days a week in the 1830s and 1840s, before there were any parks.
    They were called the Dingle Days.
    In fact, it was their brother, Richard Vaughan Yates, who financed Prince's Park.

    There has been some digging at Lime Productions in Childwall on the site of Childwall hall. A lovely glazed brick has been found during the clearing of some spoil, so there may be a little feature on it either on my website (www.childwall.info) or by way in the press. Lovely item sitting on my mate's table!
