Where the bend begins as you descend and you end up on St. George's Rd you'll see a little cut-off at the end of the cemetary. This was formerly a row of cottages demolished in the 1910's I believe and it was called Folly's Gut; at the end was a set of steps leading up to the graveyard. If you look now a set of gates have been put up but you can still see the divides of the houses where the brickwork still exists, it looks like this will all be demolished soon so I'd recommend seeing it soon before it vanishes.

I saw the "damage" to the church wall a week ago and posted a pic (again below). Subsequently I saw a photo of the upper part of Folly Lane with trams - and showing the cottages more or less where they are now excavating (new gates fitted to the opening in the last day or so). When you look inside the excavation area you can clearly see the remains of some of the old cottage walls

Really good photos, I liked those! I don't have many that aren't in things like Yesterday's Wirral or the Railway Stations of Wirral one so there's not a whole lot I can add, I did see that picture on another thread but I'd already replied here.

Still, no more Black Horse eh? It's now Sheridans. Ooh la-de-da.

Ah the old Black Horse. Well not really the OLD Black Horse - that was a much older building, as shown below. Interestingly the two guys at the doorway are Ned Hughes (my grandfather) and Billy Cross. We lived in Stonehouse Road, almost opposite the Black Horse.

If you look carefully at the building you will see that one half has a different architecture than the otehr ie different design of chimney and window. That says one part was probably very much older and then an addition was made at a later date

That's what's going to be happening to the Folly Gut cottages by the way, the next door neighbour wanted more room.

Well found BBS. I still think it would be well worth having a proper look around the part demolished site - and keeping an eye on (photographing) what may be uncovered while work is in progress.

Incidentally, when I showed my mum pictures of the cottages on the site (above) she immediately said that she remembered the higher end of the cottages away from the road had been used as an infants school for St Georges. She cannot have remembered that from observation because the cottages were demolished in 1913 and mum was born in 1918 - so probably the memorty was passed on as "village tales" - remembering the village was a LOT smaller in those days.

Off the top of my head... 'Big Yard' was farm land with pigs on it and I think it was in the area of Loretto Road.
