The Caernarvon Castle was rebuilt on the same site and opened in 1956.

Its hard to imagine that in 1941 or 67 years ago that whole area was in pieces from bombing.

It all looks so peaceful now. 2008/9

Great photos!

Before anyone notices that the main road looks very narrow on the first piccy - it was the houses opposite the church were demolished to widen the road.

You can evidence of the bombing in St Saviours in the windows that face the Pub all but one matches - that one survived the blast.

Great photos.

Did have an idea that it wasn't the orignal Pub, but I didn't know that it was destroyed by a direct hit though.

I've matched the first one up as a now and then before:




and here's another one looking the other way:

I lived at 3 Bidston Road from 1947 to 1967 when it was the only house in Townfield Lane (also it was still a unmade lane and all open land between Bidston Road and the Woodchurch estate, other than the Oxton CC and Ranks sports ground). I recall the Carnarvon Castle being re-built. We lost a playground !! What I didn't know was that there were houses opposite which were demolished and until the mid fifties it was derelict land and I had always assmumed whatever was there was also hit by the aerial mine which did for the Pub. Always wondered why the road was that much wider here.
