Hi I am doing a little investigation into the property at 12 Pilgrim Street, Birkenhead; specifically previous businesses that were located their, as well any pictures of the site. As the building was opposite the Pilgrim Street County Primary School i thought it was likely their would be some images of the area, or people would have recollections of the site as it was. So far the only pictures i have been able to find of that part of Birkenhead are on britainfromabove, for example https://britainfromabove.org.uk/image/eaw029288 https://britainfromabove.org.uk/en/image/EAW001721 where the street can be seen on the right of the images. Any help would be most welcome.
Road closed in both directions between ASDA and Arrowe Park Hotel. Possibly 8pm tonight reopen as investigation work being done. Diversions through Woodchurch and up towards Thingwall. Possible bus involved
Somebody not even thinking of stopping at the t-junction of Thornton Common Road and Poulton Hall Road near Raby Mere. Unusually I managed to find the horn, I still prefer them in the centre of the steering wheel, trying to press something on a stalk that moves around isn't very controllable. My car skidded to a stop, roads are pretty greasy at the moment.
My cooker has stopped working & going to cost more then the cooker is worth to repair but I cannot afford a new cooker at the moment so if anyone has a good clean freestanding electric cooker they no longer need could you please consider me for it. Thanks For Reading.
Front page of Wirral Globe this week - and also on their website - is a map showing many areas in which an interest has been shown by developers. On Facebook I've seen a list of areas and prospective numbers of houses, too. As you might expect, a lot of them are on Green Belt - I mean, what developer doesn't like a nice green field on which to build? Hmph. If all the properties planned for Wirral Waters (will that ever happen?) were actually built, the Green Belt wouldn't need to be threatened. Check, in case a green space near you is under threat.
I bought this a few years back as a project guitar to do up and i started but never finished.
When i got it initially it wasn't working, the pickups didn't work (the stock DiMarzio pickups were long gone and cheap ones replaced them) so i put an Ibanez INF3 in the neck position and a MightyMite high output one in the bridge and so it at least makes noise now. The only thing is the volume knobs don't work, the tone ones and the pickup selector work fine, just the volume knobs don't work. I'm sure it's an easy fix for someone in the know but hey, it makes noise at full volume, that's what Les Paul's are all about right?
Also the stock tuners were trash and one was seized so i used some that i had lying round (they say 'Gibson Deluxe on them but they're not what they say they are, they work but they're by no means Gibson Deluxe quality)
The strings could also do with a change. I think they're .10's that are on it but equally .09's will work. Anything heavier you'll need to play with the bridge etc.
This would be great for someone who wants to learn.
Also if you wanted to take it to sell on (these go for about 70 quid on eBay when they're fully working but i cba with all the hassle) then i can't stop you but would rather it went to someone who was going to use it, i don't have the space and i have too many guitars as it is so one has to go and this one being the one i play the least then it needs a new home.
Manchester airport starting to charge for dropping off holidaymakers.£3 5 minutes £4 10 minutes...i can see you being stuck in queue that long. Starts this Tuesday according to website. There this morning Terminal 2 and the new pay barriers at exit in place. Can see tailbacks on that one as its a bit of a tight turn onto main road.. I think they have a new free drop off area with a free shuttle bus to your terminal. Not sure about the picking up now as they dont seem to have any places you can stop easily (petrol stations gone) Might be ok if the shuttle bus takes them back to a drop off area.
Someone has disabled the parking meters at Royden Park by filling them with expanding foam!
I imagine these machines are now a write-off. That foam expands and goes hard sticking firmly to everything. The mechanism would probably be irreparable and would have to be replaced and probably costs a fortune too. The Wirral Globe dismisses this as 'Mindless Vandalism' but it can also be seen as the public taking back control from a bunch of politicians doing something the people they represent clearly strongly oppose. Perhaps the council should have taken the hint and removed the machines. However, they seem to have replaced them.
Whilst not advocating further damage I can't deny feeling a degree of schadenfreude at this protest, and I expect I am not the only one. Further attacks seem very likely. One could argue, too, that it is the public who pay for these machines, ultimately, and that surely gives them the moral right to do what they like with them.
Anyone remember these, found it today, buried. Corona stopped production in 1990 but as this is pre-decimalisation it is probably around 50 years old. Think they used to be delivered on the "Pop Wagons" as well or were they only Barr's? Big thick glass because they were re-used.

Interestingly the same cap (Flavour LOK Patent 975739) appear to have been used on coca-cola bottles as well.
Many will suffer I'm sure, when people are out at work and the animals in cages go unnoticed. No airflow or baking heat. Water dried up etc.
Our canine friends despite care and concern could also suffer from hot pavements/ground under their paws. So best not to stand chatting whilst the loved doggies are subjected to dancing on the spot . .... just a thought !
Im sure this will be obvious to most people who are au fait with computors , but it isnt to me ---- Since sites have started seeking you to agree to god knows what before you can open their site , Ive been referring to the usual option of 'further details' , and aim to NOT agree to giving permission for anything I dont have to ,apart from whats necessary for the site to function for me . Sounds easy , as you usually just have a box to click , but Ive seen plenty of sites where they deliberately try to mislead you into accepting something by the clicking of an apparently NO choice actually being a YES one , Im just not sure what my click means This eg below is a common version , now which option do I choose which means I only want to agree to the essentials and no other rubbish, because I have no idea what preference is being referred to by the 'on' and 'off' ?
I have been trying to give away 2 white gazebos 2.4 mtr sqr on various sites but 4 people have let me down, they will go to the tip shortly. I may deliver if local and I have time. They will be on my drive 36 Green lane, CH45 8lz
I notice that some street lights are being replaced in suburban streets around New Ferry. Not just the lights, mind you. The whole lamp post. They are being replaced with sodium lamps rather than LEDs however which makes little sense to me. The cost of the actual luminaire must be a small proportion of the cost of replacing the whole lamp posts - which seem to be installed a couple of feet from the old one which is removed after the new one is commissioned.The running costs must surely be a lot lower had LEDs been installed, and as they last a lot longer, great savings can be made on maintenance and bulb replacement too.
So far, I have spotted only one LED in a suburban street - Delta Road East. Go, marvel at it!
I can't make any sense of this. I would have expected LED replacements to go in more or less automatically, but the council seems intent on keeping us in dismal orange illumination at extra cost more or less indefinitely.
Popped over to a church in Liverpool . Whole area was either meters with a 2 hour max £4.40 which was no good as service was 2 hours long at least. Rest of the streets were single yellow but with no time designation saying when you could park. Managed to find a space where the yellow line had been removed and tarmaced over giving the impression of a parking space... so squeezed in imbetween the 2 ends of the single yellow. Got a ticket! Took a load of photos for my evidence but noticed the photos on Liverpool council website even show there is no yellow line.... Made an informal challenge to it..
From the moment you come round the corner, it's all moon buggy. It's sometimes hard to believe how long some of these roads have been left in this condition. It has a patchwork of under road repairs, and they never seem to have found the knack of doing that correctly.
2 stroke engine, approx 20cc. Currently fitted to a Partner garden strimmer but the cutting head of that has disintegrated. Engine is easy removed from the strimmer drive shaft. Pull start works fine. Fitting the engine shaft with a pulley wheel could make it suitable for a “project” such as a go-cart, bench saw etc. PM response please Donation commitment to Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation would be appreciated – wife will be doing the Wirral Coastal Walk in support
I have just seen what I am almost certain to be a 'red kite' in my garden. It swooped down into the base of a bush, then took off and landed on top of the playhouse for about 15 secs.
The other day there was something brown that took off from my back gate next to the kitchen. I didn't see what it was, just something brown but large enough to be a squirrel. I am now wondering if it was the same bird.
If anyone can throw anymore light onto this, as I know they are in N Wales now, but not heard of any in Wirral.
The colouring was a reddish brown and it had black and white, either down the side of it's body or on it's wings. Larger than a wood pigeon and definitely a bird of prey.
Not a buzzard, seen plenty of them, not the right colour for a hawk, or sparrow hawk .
HI Looking through the Ancestry website, it stated that some of my relatives, the Pritchards, had lived at 9 Davies Street, Birkenhead- I think that street may have been flattened at some point. Can anyone shed some light on this please?
The Council is suggesting a few small areas of beach around Wirral's beautiful coast where dogs will be forbidden in the summer months, also keeping sports pitches and playgrounds dog-free (as they should be), insisting people clear up their dog's poo and not leave bags hanging around (good luck with that one!!). Info is on the Council website and the Wirral Globe website has maps of affected areas. To be honest it all seems pretty reasonable, but people will need to be aware of any changes, especially in Birkenhead Park where there are a number of proposed dog-free areas. No hanging dog poo bags in trees and forgetting to come back for them any more! That is a particularly unattractive habit that I'll be glad to see the back of. Although how the Council intends to police all this, given the cuts, I wil be very interested to see...
Does anyone know of a submerged church in the Leasowe/Moreton area ? I read something but can't remember where, it could have been from John Hough's Journal, but there was no expansion or further information.
