Hi
I was wondering if anyone has any old pictures of Higher Bebington or knows of any historical information about the area around Kings Road/Kings Lane/the Boulevards and Broadway. Old maps show some large houses including "Higher Bebington Hall" but I cant find any information on any of them, except Larchwood which features in Tragic Wirral. I have lived in the area for 44 years and although there seems to be lots of pictures and info re Lower Bebington, there seems little on Higher Bebington. Thanks in advance.

The side by side map will show where it was compared with today,

http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side...-3.0285&layers=171&right=BingHyb

There's numerous mentions of it in the newspapers from 1845 to 1939. According to the 1911 census it had 17 plus rooms, mainly the home of merchants.

It says 20 what a rip off...I think they only cost about 4.99

There's this one too a bit more 'price right'

Get onto the Francis Frith website and look through the archives he has lots of Bebington on there. Sorry can't put the site up on here I try but it doesn't work .

Thanks for all of the suggestions, I have looked at a few of the suggested sites already and ordered a few books. Very interesting reading.
