I've recently heard reference to a "forgotten hamlet of Newtown".
This was in a write up for the book 'Arwe' by local historian Greg Dawson.

Has anybody heard of this place? Does anybody know of it's whereabouts? confused

I cannot see a Newtoen listed in GENUKI and that is supposed to list all old townships/parishes etc.

Newton cum Larton eh?

Thats probably why I couldn't find and mention of it. Thanks MsG. wink

"It is hard to pinpoint how old St Bridget’s Church is, since it has been altered and added to over many centuries. Though we know that Christians worshipped here at the time of the first Millennium, the earliest parts of the building surviving and visible are the VESTRY DOORWAY and some of the masonry north wall of the Lady Chapel which are of the early 14th century."
Parish Church of St Bridget.

"Newton is a village on the Wirral Peninsula, Merseyside, England, in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral. It is a part of the suburban town of West Kirby. Newton was previously combined with the hamlet of Larton as Newton-cum-Larton, part of West Kirby parish of the Wirral Hundred. "
Newton wikipedia entry

"Larton is a hamlet, located next to Frankby and near to West Kirby, on the Wirral Peninsula, Merseyside, England. The name is of Viking origin, deriving from the Old Norse Leir-tun, meaning 'Clay farmstead'. Larton was formerly known as part of 'Newton-cum-Larton' , which was part of West Kirby parish of the Wirral Hundred.
Today, Newton is again regarded as a separate entity from Larton and is a district of West Kirby. Larton is now part of the Frankby parish, containing the majority of the population of the former township. Larton's name remains in geographical use only with the local riding school, Larton Livery and Larton Farm,and a new "state of the art" veterinary surgery."

Bromborough
I used to be the mechanic onsite at Larton Livery and Stables in the 90`s. Most of it was built on Yorkshire stone dumped there many years ago, and when Bill the owner heared it was worth money, he had the "brilliant" idea of digging up the kennels at the rear and extracting it all!!! Didnt happen tho!!
He built ALL that kennels, stables, livery and house himself! A great achievement. You cant get to the workshops now as he has built the feed shop across the entrance!!


IF IT HAS A HOSE THEN IM YOUR MAN
