I was just looking at the maps of the old tram way on the Friends of Storeton Woods website and there's an Old Hall marked on there.

It's at the bottom of village road so it's not Bebington Hall as this was obviously down in Lower Bebington opposite Mayer Park.

Does anyone know of a hall in Higher Bebington, could it be what is not the British Legion or would it have been where the car park is adjacent to the off licence?

That's the one that was opposite Mayer Park where the civic centre is now.

The one i'm talking about is at the bottom of village road in Higher Bebington. From the way it's marked on the map it's either what is now the British Legion or was over the road from it.

The Hall you linked is on the other half of that map in Lower Bebington.

The Lower Bebington hall opposite Mayer Hall was called "Bebington Hall"

The Higher Bebington hall was called "Bebington Old Hall"

I would be disappointed if national heritage got them mixed up, I will hunt more smile

So there were two halls called Bebington Hall kind of?

I was born and grew up in Higher Bebington and have never heard of the old hall.

Was it where the park is?

I can't think of anywhere else near where it's marked on the map with enough room.

Plus in that photo it looks like the house slopes and there's no land like that where it's marked on the map.

I'm confused.

What we need to look at is "Connah G. 1952. The Old Houses of Bebington" which I am fairly sure is in Bebington Library

The house on Lost Heritage is definitely Bebington Hall in Lower Bebington there's a photo of it from the opposite angle in Bebington of Yesteryear.

So my hunt for the Old Hall in Higher Bebington goes on lol

It does seem that the Lower Bebington Hall is referred to as "Bebington Old Hall" in many places, but not on maps.

There's no mention of it in any of my local History books.

Where's Chris Kay when you need him. Sure he'll know something of it.

Found the book Fir Bob Land and have started to read it again a quick skim thru only brings up Old Hall farm info you have on this topic,suspect there was no Old Hall maybe it was a name given by the locals to a big house that was knocked down or rebuilt but had a different name

I think there was a house/building called "The Limes" at about that location.
