Just wondering if anyone has any old maps or pictures of Mostyn Street, Wallasey? It's strange that there are two completely different styles of houses on the opposite sides of the road (one side is all terraced, one is semis) and we were just wondering what was where the semi's are before they were built, which, I think was about 1950 (ish). Thanks in advance!

Some of the semi's are much older than you probably think and date back to the early 1900's.

ok, I'm properly thick, they are semis on both sides of the road, the even number ones are much newer houses than the odds!

Lol!

Click on this link, enter any place-name (like Mostyn Street, Wallasey), then select any available map that come up from the list on the right. See if that helps.

that's excellent that, thankyou! I have found that my house didn't exist on the 1935 map and it seems to be just land, possibly belonging to Manor Farm...I've never even heard of Manor Farm, anyone know anything?! Sorry to be a pain!

Not sure about the farm, but there's a lot of stuff about old Seacombe & Poulton on here:

Interesting to see the old clay pits in that area.

There's a playing field just off Gorsedale Road which is still known locally as 'The Pit'. I'm guessing this was a similar clay pit for brick production or some such.

In common with many streets Mostyn Street was developed over quite a long period of time, hence the disparity in the house styles. According to the Council's Building Plan Registers approval to lay out the street was granted to the landowner R W Rowlands, of Manor Road, in December 1901. The first houses were approved in two blocks (Nos. 1-15 and 17-27) in August 1902 and August 1903, and were built by Hugh Griffith. Nos. 29-35 were added by R W Rowlands (by then living at 2 Norwood Road) in late 1915, but the remainder of the street wasn't developed until after WW1; Nos. 37-71 by C J Clark of Rock Ferry in 1923, and the remainder (Nos. 4-14 and 16-32) by R W Rowlands in 1923 and 1925.

From what I've been told Manor Farm as a pig farm.
My mate lived in no 28 Gorsey Lane in the 60's-70's & his next door neighbour was an old lady called Mabel Walls whose family I think used to own Manor Farm. She was a bit of a character & used to do oil paintings, & in her younger days she was a Warden in the war & also a chauffeur for Stone Manganese.
