Not sure I recognise this; are you talking about the Oval sports ground, near Bebington station?

Its here, right by Town Lane in Bebington:

Think its only down the road from the oval. Not 100% though as I aint been there since I stopped sprinting.

OK, got it now. My memory is that during the war, a Junkers 88 bomber crashed at Bromborough Pool & was put on display on the grassland between the 2 drives leading to the Oval sports ground. My dad took me to see it. There's trees there now I think.
