Used solid condition,guessing it is made out of some sort of composite material. Could be painted to match your interior. Collect asap from Greasby. No contact collection,will be left outside front door inside of building for you. Im putting tv on the wall so it is no longer needed. (Comes without tv or any items you see in the images 😊).
I am looking for information on st johns place, as i cannot find any reference to it, other than on census'.
Comparing maps and records.. I believe that it may be two buildings that appear on the OS map published 1882 (between pym street and st johns street) but is replaced by one school building on later maps.
A point to the direction of any information regarding the grange ward from the mid 1800s to the late 1960s would be perfect, as i have 1000s of questions/queries regarding this area.
I would like to find a map that shows individual address numbers, however i cannot find any older maps that show this, would the townhall hold such records? Google has ran out of new things to tell me 😂
I received a letter from Highways and Infrastructure on 5th July, dated 1st July. It advised me to remove overhanging vegetation so a new led streetlamp could be fitted - removal to be done within 14 days of the date of the letter. Apparently overhanging vegetation was preventing the work being done. No triffids on my premises, I'm happy to say - just a well-behaved waist-high box hedge and a slightly overhanging sumach. As it happens, the lamp-post had already been replaced without any difficulty, or comment by the workmen on the amount of greenery in the vicinity, on 17th June! Since, I'd trimmed one branch of the sumach with secateurs to stop it rubbing on the post.
How is sending out a letter like this, so long after the event, a good use of our cash-strapped Council's resources? Who decided on the threat posed by my greenery - and should they have gone to Specsavers? What happened to joined-up thinking? Has this happened to anyone else? Daftness indeed...
In this World in Action Part Three video about Birkenhead there is a comment re. 6th and 8th avenue on the Ford Estate (My mate lived on the Ford (6 Ave) and I remember walking to the 8th Ave (where these flats were - 1 min 10 seconds) to a shop around 1984/85, I was around 14 or 15).
On Google Maps I only see avenues 1st to 5th. Was there a renovation scheme on the Ford Estate where they demolished the 6th to 8th avenues?
The market will be moved to St Werburghs Square whilst the town centre is redeveloped. Google Maps is showing it where Game and H Samuel jewellers are, and where St Werburghs Church is, so I'm confused on the exact location. Anyway, how can you fit a market in either of these places? And what would happen to the meat and fish market?
I can vaguely remember this car park ((in light blue on map) never being used except possibly 1950/60 for Hardings? laying a railway track and running a small size train on it, I think around one christmas time. Can anyone confirm whether this happened
Does anyone recognise these doors? My house is a reconstructed farm building and the doors were apparently sourced from an institute of some sort on The Wirral. Anyone involved in the building work, from the late '80's, has passed on.
The locks are unique in that they could be locked twice, with two different keys (I don't have any keys). I would imagine that rooms needed to be locked and, at times double locked, by a person in authority. Possibly to keep someone inside secure or access strictly controlled.
They are larger than average in size and beautifully made. They all came with original architraves so were deemed valuable enough to be carefully salvaged at the time.
I've searched many times and not found anything definitive. Any information would be appreciated.
I have a set of the The Wirral Journal magazines from Spring 1982 to Spring 1996. I also have Wirral Champion Journal from Spring 2000 to Winter 2002. If anyone is interested in these then they can be collected from Upton.
I was down at Moreton shore yesterday at low tide and came across what seemed like wooden posts embedded into the sand about 50m offshore. They were still upright, seemed fairly sturdy still and there was about 7 of them in almost an exact row. Does anyone know what these would have been or whether there's ever been a structure on the beach? I'm aware of the prehistoric forest near Meols that used to be seen occasionally, but these were definitely rounded stumps rather than the remains of trees. Just curious whether anyone knew why they might have been there!

A black Patterdale dog called Charlie went missing on 21 March 2021 about 9pm. He is 10 years old with white paws and flash on chest, and grey muzzle. He was last seen opposite the St Johns ambulance building on the A41 in Eastham. He may be injured and requires medication.
Just wondering if anyone knows the reason why the recycling bins for plastic, cans and bottles have been taken away from Upton Sainsburys - and possibly other supermarkets, though I haven't been to check? I used the plastics one regularly, though the kerbside collection is okay for some plastic, as well as cans and glass. This is not likely to encourage people to recycle - I thought that was a priority. Can't see anything on the council's Facebook page to explain it - but maybe it's not the council's responsibility Any ideas?
Probably the same as the Hindon Hotel and Hindoo Tavern at this address in 1850 to 1860. The Hindoo Tavern is listed in Bagshaw's Directory of 1850. (Listed in the wiki index as '28 Hindon Tavern Beckwith Street')
The pub was leased to Anchor Brewery from 1861 and transferred to Birkenhead Brewery in 1866 as the Bank of Ireland Hotel, it possibly got its name because Irish sailors picked up their pay nearby and then spent it in the pub.
The photos from the 1950s are courtesy of Helen Wood whose grandparents Frank and Mabel Ryan were licensees from 1948 until the time the pub closed on 22 June 1962. The interior shot shows Frank Ryan behind the bar on the far right. The pub was later demolished.
The fields at the back of the Mosslands school have been taken over by nature over the past 30 years. When i was a wee nipper these fields where sports fields for the school. (Its Rumored) A housing development on cross lane in the 90's caused problems with the water table and now once a year the field turns in to a bit of a marshland in places.It is a wonderful field full of life and nature. The noise of the creatures and birds is glorious.
However... the owner of West Wallasey van hire wants to pour concrete over it all and create a road from the main office to the fields so that they can store more commercial vehicles. The blue in the photo is his current holdings and the red are his proposed. The area has been designated as an area of green space but for some reason the council are still trying to sell this land, it isn't theirs to sell it is ours. Please sign the petition to stop this from happening.
