Had a good trawl through the net and cant find any images either. It was a cracking old mansion. I believe monks were living in it directly after the war. Eastham has a local History group, you could try contacting them .

The only picture on the internet that has a bit of the house is below, as can be seen, the chapel was built right next to the house. I have seen pictures in books but iirc they were partially obscured by trees.

I also found this low quality bigger picture in my collection, I appeared to have photographed a poster about 6 years ago.

House was built in 1860 for Canon William Edward Torr, designed by Thomas Henry Wyatt.

The Chapel was also built for Canon Torr but later in 1885 and designed by John Douglas.

Canon Torr was the Vicar of Eastham and later became the honorary Canon of Chester Cathedral.

The house was built for John Torr, born 1813, Riby, Lincolnshire, son of William Torr, Gentleman Farmer.
In 1845 he married Louisa Dempsey in Liverpool.
Canon William Edward Torr, born 1852 was their son.
The house was completed in 1860, designed by T Wyatt who was also the architect for Exchange Buildings, Liverpool.
John Torr died at Carlett Park in 1880, during his life he worked in the cotton trade, later a Merchant and Member of Parliament for Liverpool from 1873.

Thanks Bert, I should have checked which "Torr" it was, Canon Torr stuck in my mind too easily.

Incidentally, from the Park Lodge gates in Torr Park, you can still see the path the trees took up the original driveway to the house, before St David and St John's Roads were built.

The Lodge on the right hand side of those gates is one of the three lodges belonging to Carlett Park Mansion and was called Village Lodge, another was where the St John's ambulance place is on the A41 called Bromborough Lodge, and the last one was Ferry Lodge where Torr drive joins Ferry Road. In two of those cases it looks like the existing gate posts may be the original ones.
