In the early 80s I used to go to a school off Whetstone Lane for a rehearsal every week. It was called St Werburgh's, but I just can't work out where it would have been. (Not the primary school that's still there). I can't remember much about it except going up some stairs and walking along a long corridor to the main hall.

The others would be, around Whetstone lane.

The Woodlands, Birkenhead Institute, The Convent at the top of Whetstone Lane.

The YMCA is very near St Werburgh's - could that have been the place?

No, it was definitely a school and definitely called St Werburgh's. I just can't work out where it could have been. It must have been demolished at some point after 1983 which was the last time I was in there.

St Werburgh' school is in Parks Gardens ,a little lane off Whetstone Lane before the Y.M.C.A .It was knocked down in the 90's and a new modern one built. Hope this helps ..

Thanks, Bert and missmahjong - it looks as if the primary school is now on the site of the school that was demolished. Would love to see some photos of the old building. smile

I left St werburghs primary school in 1969. It was behind Birkenhead Library! The main entrance was in Shaw street, but you could also go through the playground via whetstone Lane.
