As a child I lived in Rock Ferry very close to where the Abbotsford Pub
now stands. In those days it was just a field (we seemed to be surrounded by fields then - we always referred to this particular one as "The Field" as opposed to "The Top Field" or "The Back Field").
I seem to recall, as children, we always assumed this field was actually a cleared bomb site although I don't remember anyone ever actually telling us this. Looking back, and imagining it as it was, I now think this wasn't the case. Certainly there was evidence that there had been buildings on it at one time.
Does anyone here know its true History
