Before the docks were built. This view approximately where the penny bridge is.

A very good picture. I have never seen it before.

If you hadn't mentioned the Penny Bridge I would of tried to work out the location - though St Lukes is in the background to the right and in front of that are a row of houses which would of been demolished and replaced with Poulton Vics Social Club.

I guess one of those houses to the left of the row in front of St Lukes must be Darley Dene. Probably the one on the extreme left

Good pic.

Was on the cover of a Poulton Vics magazine once and I thought it was brilliant so made a copy. Think there are postcards of it out there if you can find them.

That big hole in the foreground always makes me wonder. It's like a bomb crater but before bombs of the aeroplane type. Perhaps it was a test hole or something for the coming docks?

Inbetween those two houses used to be a road called Breck place which is now a private road, it would of once led to that row of houses which used to be there before the poulton vics, wow omg

No, you fool; that's the Pool. raftl

Incidentally, was looking at a map from 1858 yesterday where it's spelled "Poolton"

I thought the whole expanse of water down to the Mersey was Wallasey Pool?

'Wallasey Pool' stretched from the mouth of the Mersey right up to Bidstom Moss.

The name Poulton is Anglo-Saxon, partly English and partly Celtic. The "Pool" comes "Pwll" meaning a pool in Welsh, whilst the "ton" is Saxon for town or hamlet. This simply means 'Pool Town'.

Wallasey Pool was actually used as an anchorage for the Vikings as they met for Parliament at Thingwall

Looks like there's a boatyard over on the Wallasey side as well. Wonder if there's anything written about that in the History books?

Think there used to be Limekilns in that same area (probably 18th century). Amazing to think there was so much going on around there even before the docks were built.
