There used to be some old military base in Holm Lane Oxton. Don't know if it was RAF though.

There was some sort of military instalation/camp just round the corner from RAF West Kirby.
Used to play there, only a couple of building bases and gatehouse were there then, all gone now i think.
Come from RAF West Kirby site to the roundabout at the crossroads heading to saughall Massie, turn left at roundabout and was there in the fields to the right! Havent been on the land for years, go past quite often but cant see anything there.
Anyone add to this??

Where they just beside a bend in the road?. I remember a brick structure being there years ago. Me and my sister used to call it the wishing well because we thought it resembled one (we where kids at the time).

Apparently it was used for the national service training 6 week stint. It did have a nick-name but dont kow what it was. Part of the land was requisitioned by MOD, but now is farmland again. It is on the left from Suaghall hope this helps!!

HI, I think you mean all the roads off Frankby road...eg Upavon ave. , Kinloss Road, Martlesham Crescent etc

Type in kinloss road on google maps and have a virtual 'drive' around the place.

They were just the married quarters for West Kirby and later Sealand. All named after RAF Stations.

That's an interesting map - must have been made when the RAF West Kirby site was actually being developed. Only shows half of the estate by the roundabout built, and there's no sign of the officers accommodation on the road up to Black Horse hill (opposite where Hilbre High School is now).

So did I. I used to do some courting there after it had all been demolished!
