This is one taken of Napier Rd New Ferry in 1970. It looks like it hasn't changed much since WW11

Here's one of New Ferry Shorefields. I'm sure most people would remember this Lifeboat as they were passing to go to the baths. The photo was taken in 1970.

Dont know how it got there, but i lived on corner of field close and spent many a time playing in it. I know it was removed for health and safety, obviously as kids we were always getting hurt playing on it lol. stupid. i wonder how we lived so long sometimes.

We used to go to New Ferry baths when we were kids and I well remember seeing this ruined lifeboat. At that time, there was the wreck of a ship lying just off the nearby shore - it was there for many years. I wonder if this lifeboat had any connection?

Old Dennis, who used to live in the house on the corner put it there!


Kids, you tried your best and failed miserably. The lesson is never try!
