Yes. Wasn't it just opposite the bus stop. As a child I used to get the No.77 that turned round there. I think the bus driver/conductor used to grab a quick cuppa at that cafe/arcade.

I remember that i think it was painted green, yes and we use to jump the 77. Up there was the Apollo club, is that still open, and just by it was a Poodle parlour for cutting their hair. Wasn't there a roller skating ring or was it the apollo before it was a club.

dont think the cafe opens up any more,it is owned by a guy called gerry and he buys and sells pallets for a living now.next door is a small garage car body repair shop(alan hyde).the cafe used to open up on sundays for the car booties. there is a decent cafe just over the road towards the shore,does a mean fish and chips.nice when taking a stroll along the shore.

Were these for stopping tanks?
They'd probably just crumble under the weight!

Interesting - The 1910 map has "Castle Blake" on that corner, the 1895 map has rifle ranges between that corner and the sea. The dragons teeth can be seen right along the Wallasey Embankment on the 1970s aerial pictures. See Cheshire Tithe Maps for all above.

That photo is from another thread, I can remember playing on them in the early sixties, They were a defence against tanks coming ashore WW2.

"Further down to the shore an old building still stands now under constant security as it has completely shut down. It was formerly known as Father Berry's home or Castle Blake, when it was used to house orphans from Liverpool who's parents had been lost at sea whilst serving in the Navy. In later years it was the lighthouse café, providing a year round service to the day tippers and locals. The large grey house now stands empty on the corner of Leasowe road waiting for somebody to take over its lost History "
