1 I went past this lodge on the bus and thought I saw the date as 1827.Is there a possibility it belonged to a big house
2 What used to be on the empty concreted space at the top of Ashville Road by the roundabout.
3 On the map 1876 were Cannon Hill and Cannon Mount actual buildings at one time

Some years since I've been to Birkenhead Park and was wondering if the toilets/changing rooms by the swings had been demolished
and possibly if new ones built.
from the pdf I mentioned in previous post

"Demolitions, incl. lavatory block & ‘changing room’ in Education’s sports field"

the cannons

the concreted space used to be Tennis Courts about 4 courts if I remember correctly, they were hard courts and were used by both Park High and St Anselms

There were big posh houses all the way along here. One of my relatives was a housemaid in the 1891 census at No 5 Cannon Hill. Her father worked in the same house as a groom.

the address for that building was 2a cannon hill,it housed stables for the gentry who lived in the big house behind,later it was used as a taxi office untill it was converted by john palmer in 1961/2 he gave it the appearence of a bungalow,but half of the house is below ground.

I have always thought of Cannon Hill from the 1960s as the football pitch that had a slope just by the swings and toilets/changing rooms.
The other pitch being the cinder pitch (ouch)

google blair athol,birkenhead to get a pdf about Birkenhead Park - quite interesting

The following shows an indication of the rate of
the introduction of sports:
 1853 – curling allowed on the upper park lake
 1854 – Cricket club permitted to play quoits
 1857 – permit system put in place for fishing in the lower lake
 1858 – plot of land allocated for archery
 1861 – plot of land set aside for football (previously prohibited)

Cinders indeed,and if my memory is not at fault the other pitch was prone to being somewhat boggy/muddy, hence if we could get away with it a better location was either on (that's if 'Slim Jim' did not get you)the outfield of the cricket pitch, or that spot in the first field, down by the lake.

On the Lodge pic the date is definitely 1827 checked out again - no need to go to specsavers yet.
May call in there sometime and ask if the owner knows why and if I can have a look around at the underground part.
