do you remember the old Cheshire Lines Building down Shore rd, Birkenhead? Many will remember it as Littlewoods pools as well!
The building is being gutted at present, having been used as local council / civil offices, so all the partition walls and suspended ceilings are coming out! Should be left with an empty shell as was in the times of Cheshire Lines!
was in there the other day working on a forktruck for the demolition guys and decided on a snoop about!(as you do!!)
went thru to the rear which is still partly occupied (quietly) and found the old telephone room and security office from Littlewoods. some of the Directors offices with name tags on doors, some still furnished!
But best of all, just opposite the security office was a vault door, unlocked!!
When inside it was the main vault for Littlewoods, huge room, empty (of course!) probably the size of the ground area of my house!!! Had second BIG safe in corner but locked (combination lock!)
On the wall was a board with a copy of EVERY
key to the place, inside and out still on their hangers!!
Phone camera playing up so have to do another "breakdown" next week!!
Watch this space......!
