Hi .... Does anyone remember a club at the top of the monkey steps in hillside road tranmere ..... It was first called sammys dance hall .... Then went on to be called the hillside club .... Then onto be called the welly ( the Wellington ) ........ Would love to hear of your memories of this place , once upon a time owned by my grandfather George Daniels .... I was born in the house next door to the club .

Went once in the 60s to see a group called The Hillsiders (still got one of their albums) and vaguely remember there being a balcony where we stood looking down at the group.
Possibly the group got its name from the club.

Hi,I remember it, it was quite small. My Uncle had the little General store at the top of the Hill, used to eat all the sweets.

Around 1877 the Temperance Society had fund raising events in order to finance the building of a Mission Hall on the Holt, Hillside Rd. It appears the Mission Hall has had through various years, name and slight number changes as the road developed, depending on what directory and census, I'm assuming it was what ended up being the Wellington Club.

1911, Temperance Mission Hall
1916, Samuel Cartlidge & Mrs Constance, Dance
1923, as 1916
1938 Claremont Hall, School of Dance
Later years the Hillside Club and Wellington Club.

Perhaps just coincidental, but I wonder, there was Claremont Villas in Wellington Rd, Wallasey, Did that have any influence on the clubs name?

Thank you for that info Bert .... Extremely interesting .... I have no idea as to where the name Wellington came from .... I think that was post my grandfather's ownership, as I only remember it being the hillside when he owned it ... Very interesting information you have offered there though .... Much obliged
