Has anyone got any maps they could share of the different areas of Wallasey (possibly 1950s/1960s that have house numbers on similar to my Birkenhead map (I've done the colouring in)
Just phoned up Earlston library about 1950S/1960S maps and they have and they can be scanned in sections (also photocopied)
The archives haven't

Hopefully someone on here has already done this and can give me copies of Seacombe, Wallasey Village, Liscard,Poulton and New Brighton

Trying to find and put on maps all the pubs that are in the Pub index and still researching (particularly Birkenhead) then on to other areas.
The Wallasey ones and other areas are just street names to me and I haven't an inkling where many of them are or were.

Derek

I have a 26 inch to the mile O/S map of Wallasey Village. They do not come much bigger scale than that. Do we know anyone with access to a big scanner? I could do it in A4 sections or at a pinch maybe A3 (the A3 scanner is a bugger to set up). Ideally we need someone in a professional drawing office/ plan maker business.

My guess is that I have scanned at least parts of this map some time in the past - from about the Cheshire Cheese to Grove Road. I am going to look for the files

Snod

***** Found it !! Miracles. 1.2 Mb file so I will put it on Google Drive and send you the link

I am not good at using Google Drive so I am not sure the link will work - I am sure you will tell me if it does not

Thanks Snod, but not quite what I wanted.
Want one with house numbers on 1950s/1960s
What date is that map?
On your map I've circled a PH which I think is opposite The Cheshire Cheese - do you know what its name was please?
Vaguely recall somewhere on wikiwirral maybe a painting by Hopps

Was the Ring 'o Bells

My map is dated 1954 - but of course the original survey could have been earlier. In '54 I was 12 years old (shudder) and I do not remember the Ring 'o Bells Pub in the Village. Yes, there WERE paintings of the place by Hopps ( I have copies).

I lived in the Village almost all my life and as a kid the stretch from Breck Road to around Grove Road and from the railway line to St Georges Rd was "home territory". We used to sledge down Church Hill next to the Cheese so I am sure I would have remembered another Pub opposite.

OK, so you want to know the NUMBERS of the buildings and who lived there. There are documents that will help.
I have added another file to the Google Drive
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5luOCc3gfEucnczRG9MdzZZVHc/edit?usp=sharing

I do not have a date for that list but maybe I can find it

It's not for knowing who lives there.
It's to colour in and name any pubs - mainly old and gone pubs addresses I may come across or simply marked as PH or inn on the map when there may be several in a road or street.

ps
Was there ever an Inn opposite the Black Horse

Never one opposite the Black Horse that I have ever heard about. The site opposite the Blackie USED to be the original "Stonehouse", indeed, on the wall of the locksmiths on the site now there is a plaque indicating this. The plaque is in real need of renovation.

I think the indication of "INN" on your map refers to the Black Horse - map makers are never very accurate with names like this and simply use the nearest bit of open space on the map to put their words.

Currently in what I call the Village we have
The Ship
The Cheshire Cheese
The Black Horse - I refuse to use the new name
The Farmers Arms
The Lighthouse
The Nelson

We used to also have
Ring o Bells
Royal Oak
Travellers Rest - I just about remember this one

Can't think of any others. Places like the Twenty Row on Leasowe and The Boot in Liscard are "non Village" to me

My map I think is about 1913 yours looks like earlier to me although superior. Possibly a tithe map early 1800s.

Mine is standard Ordnance Survey that I bought from Bookland in Liscard. 6 Shillings. Plan SJ2992. It is dated as 1954

It shows the spaces in Stonehouse Rd/ Russell Rd areas where houses were bombed so there were at least some post-war revisions
