I remember .... (Folly lane, Wallasey Village) #1042344

Wallasey Village
I remember that a few years ago "we" ie WikiFolk, had a discussion about a building in the upper part of Folly Lane, Wallasey Village ie looking up towards the church from the village road. For sure there WERE originally several buildings between the church walls and down to the main village road.

First there was a row of cottages parallel to the village road that sloped upwards because the ground slopes upwards towards the church. Just below that row of cottages was a path alongside a tall stone wall that eventually led into the curchyard. That route was blocked off (guess) in 1960s and the site of the cottages has now become the Health centre.

However, the building in question was a taller one lower down towards the Village Road. I can be seen in the pic below. Such a tall building with windows at a high level - but not below - must have had an unusual duty.

I THINK we decided that it had originally been a smithy but that later it was used to house the (horse drawn) Village fire engine.

I cannot find the original conversations to refresh my memory about this area of the Village. Can anyone help?

Thank you, Bert
I could not find that thread but did find another. However, the one I was looking for was that which discussed the other buildings below the Folly Gut cottages down to the Village - and especially whether one of those MAY have been used for the Village fire engine

Still looking

Snod,

Don't suppose this helps, an interesting read anyway,

Very interesting thank you - but as you said will not answer my question

The discussion in which I am involved is whether the village had a fire engine shed in the upper part of Folly Lane (towards where the Health Centre is now) or much lower down beyond Olive Farm on what used to be called Vose's Field

Brilliant !!!
I am sure that extract was the start of what I remembered and which led to further discussion of the use of buildings at the lower (Village) end of the upper part of Folly Lane.

Many thanks
Snod

Hi Snod.My Grandad was raised in Wallasey Village (born 1920). I asked him about fire engine shed and he does not recall one.
