I'm sure this is common knowledge but:

Can someone tell me
Exactly where I can find these gardens. I know they are facing hoylake
Road?

One reason is to see the gardens and two is to see the old entrance to the tunnels.

If someone can pin point it on a map or point me in the right direction that would be great.

I put " rhododendron gardens Birkenhead" into Google maps, it came up with Vyner Road by the windmill. No idea if that is right, sorry.

Looking at a few things online myself and it's lord vyners garden donated to the council upon his death and then housed an entrance for the tunnels. In lead to believe it's behind the trees on the cross roads at bidston tennis centre and the village. Near opposite the school on the hill?

Hi mate

Sorry for being thick

I'm walking up the hill towards the village .....

The rods is on my left? And that's where the entrance is? There is an emergency exit nearby?

Is there also one on brow hill as well ?

The rods, (rhododendron gardens) is between Hoylake Rd. and Boundary Rd./Brow Rd. If you locate the last house on Hoylake Rd, nearly opposite Hurrell Rd., there is one blocked entrance opposite that house, at the tree line.

Bennyboy, slightly off topic, your PM box is full, I've been trying to PM you. I have posted a Form Picture of St John's School pupils, a thread you started in 2011, might be of interest to you. Regards
