Thermopylae Pass

A Memory of Bidston

I too am intrigued by stories of this pass, and have no images of it, although I have an extensive section on Bidston and surrounds on my own site. I am also in communication with Joan Grey on this. I phoned the Rangers of the Hill, and they told me that the pass was simply 'Upton Road, now leading down Ford Hill' but joan tells it it was an actual area of the Hill and now, contrary to the terms of ownership, the Council built Noctorum council estate on it. The terms of ownership of Bidston Hill is that NO buildings will be constructed on the area at all, as it is held in perpetuity for the public.
