When Cadbury's was built in 1954 (officially opening on 17 September 1954) the Council condemned and removed all the insanitary houses that were situated on the field.

Looking down Pasture Road from the railway bridge towards Leasowe Shore. The houses were removed on the right. Cadbury's entrance was to the right at the bottom of the slope.

just as a side note,if you took a black and white photo today from the exact same veiw point,the new picture would not be that much different,you wont see much of the factory because it would be hard over to the right of the picture,so take cadburys lodge out and the trees by the bus and the two house at the very bottom of the slope and it wont look a whole different,apart from the industrial estate i work in.as well as the texaco sign stuck behind the cottags....if i see old man biddle this week i will ask him about the houses,he probably knows who lived there.

not sure where you are talking about
There is/was a bungalow just past Cadburys that used to be kennels where you could leave your dog if you were going away on holiday.
Can remember before becoming the little industrial estate opposite Cadburys there were a load of prefab houses on it

that part used to be the football pitch for the 1st team when I played for them 60s/70s, (nearer to the buildings used as cricket pitch in summer) There were other pitches on the Leasowe side of Cadburys for the 2nd and 3rd teams
