Wirral History

I'd never heard of this and just found an article about West Kirby outdoor swimming baths in Heswall Magazine.

By 1900 the West Kirby Swimming Club had been formed, using the Marine Lake for galas and competitions and for regular pleasure swimming.

Locals used to swim in the Marine Lake but the council didn't allow this so provided changing rooms on barges. You were only allowed to swim after 9am from the changing barges, and there was a fee to be rowed out to the barges. In 1913 they started building the baths shelter on the promonade, and continued building it during the war.

Here is a link to all of our long gone outdoor pools.

An amazing accomplishment indeed, he must have dug into the very depths of his mind and concentration, it makes one think does dementia clear now and then akin to a break in the clouds and enable some clarity for a short time.

I must admit not a lot going on with "Wiki" at the moment, so it has been quiet, looking forward to putting the gloves on again, so we can resume our sparring sessions. love casper xxx

Here we go .. now brought to the streets of Europe. No police and silence from the French authorities. Macron has got a problem that will spill over to the rest of Europe, and us included in the not too distant future. We need to be taking note instead of thinking it's too far away to bother us. Well it isn;t,


Lack of any condemnation of Turkey's actions by EU , or US.

I always found metallic colours to be easier to match than conventional standard colours, The modern trend though appears to be that car sprayers these days only spray the damaged panel even if the colour is slightly off, whereas they used to paint adjacent panels to blend-in so the colour would match perfectly.

There are often different variants of a colour as not all are standard and the extra effort has to be put in to make sure the job was matching absolutely correctly.

Some paint shops may take this additional panel painting into consideration when quoting for a job as they would know which are bad colour and which are not to match.

Thanks again to all for their contributions. It would seem that the Tintern House School was probably the inspiration for my father's false declaration of "Intern House School, Balloch" as his place of education.

The amount for self-employed has been doubled for both the third and fourth payments. Likewise the employed and business payments have also been re-jiggled.

I presume too many people were going unemployed as payments covering mortgage/rent and kids may have been better on unemployment than amount SEISS was paying - which was pitifully small.

Also there has been a little sneaky trick that two months weren't covered by SEISS, to date self-employed have only received 6 months worth of payments in two instalments and aren't getting another payment until January - that's a huge gap (5 months-ish?) without a payment.

I suspect to gain favour they will make a partial pre-Xmas payment.

That’s something I overlooked, there are gateways either side of Aabacus, so the whole yard sloped. I thought some pictures showed the railway ramp was high and dry.
