Yes, it's surely much earlier. Not sure that Thermopylae ought to be called Upton either.

Yes, it is the lodge to Bidston Court, the section of map below (taken from chriskay's post further up the thread) shows the lodge with the main entrance and drive to Bidston Court passing it.

It,s a beautiful house with really interesting carvings on any idea when it was built.I went up there yesterday as it is 10 mins away from me it looks like no-one is living there and I noticed 2 big metal storage containers in the garden.Which made me think work might be starting on it .

Just to confirm that the grounds of Bidston Court on Vyner Road South were handed over to the council and they are freely open to the public. Until fairly recently you could drive in and park up, but they have now put a post in the way to stop cars.
