I got on the bus the other day at the bottom of Ford Hill going to West kirby. I looked at the ticket and it said Sandiway.I've lived in the area for years and don't know of a road with that name.Any ideas about this?It mighht be an old road name-but if so,why hang on to it?Thanking you in advance!

Land occupied by Buttermere Avenue was once a plot (c. 1842)

Owner: Robert Vyner
Occupier: George Much
Plot Name: Sandy Hay
Land Use: Oats

Does that solve the mystery?

Two Sandiways on the Wirral, one in Bromborough and one in Meols. Don't know how the ticket machines work these days, was it just set for the wrong route?

If you know the route number, you can check the stops HERE

But we do tend to use local names quite a bit such as "Ford Hill" that you used and "Charing Cross" in Birkenhead.

There's a Sandy Way in Oxton near the girls school MissGuided, but no Sandiways.
