About this photo

The Half Way House Hotel is on the corner of Storeton Road and Woodchurch Road out towards Prenton. A large, solid half-timbered hotel, it was popular for functions and gatherings among the local population. Prenton Park, the home of Tranmere Rovers, is not far away, so the pub would be busy on home match days. The arrangement of the traffic light poles looks rather unusual.

A pub of the old school where the landlord caters for everyone from 18 to 80, the Halfway House (right) has been in continuous operation since 1893. The junction has been improved to cope with modern traffic flows, but the area in general has changed but little in 50 years.
