Iv just finished uploading the maps of where bombs landed on Wirral during WW2 to my site. It doesnt cover all of Wirral at the minute but it should do eventually. Its quite interesting to see which buildings were damaged.

If you know of a bomb that landed that has been missed off the maps please drop me an e mail and i will add it. Just follow the link from the main page here to view the maps.

Bidston map 2.1, the two public houses that are there today, the left hand public house a whole row of 2 up 2 down houses were destroyed ( from where St James library was right up to the public house shown on the map) my grandparents lived at 368 Laird street i think just a little towards st James church from where the bombing happened, I do have a photograph of the destruction which was taken at the time which was enlarged for a souvenier newspaper - it also makes it pretty easy to pinpoint the specific row of houses too. But I think the bomb damage may be just ever so slightly out of your map the houses up to the public house may have been pulled down because of this, will try and dig out the photograph.

Yes, it was just about the middle of the front of the school, right against the railings of the pavement(but in the playground), eight people were killed. This in addition to the right hand side of the building getting hit (with no deaths). If you have Birkenhead at War, it is page 44.

This topic reminds me of a story that my grandad told me.He lived in bull hill in little neston and a bomber jettisioned a bomb(probably left over from a raid on liverpool) which landed in the the stewarts garden across the road (now a small estate of posh houses)the blast blew all the windows and doors out of the houses on bull hill and he did the job of replacing them all (he was a joiner).Must have happened towards the end of the war because he was based in dar es salaam during the war.
