Liverpool, Knowsley Hall 1890

More about this scene


Caption for Liverpool, Knowsley Hall 1890: Knowsley is the home of the Stanley family, and is one of the most imposing of the large houses around Liverpool. It is also unique in that it is still today the home of Lord Derby (the title of the Stanley family). Here we have a good view of the large house which has welcomed so many kings, queens and princes over the years. Some came to stay as they journeyed around the country, but many more came as friends, to relax, or to take in a few days shooting. The older part of the hall is on the right, and though much of the estate is now given over to the Safari Park, the Hall still retains much of its family touch.

I read some (...Read full memory)

I grew up in Bodley Street (L4) from 1960-1970. There was a Welsh church at the top of the street and on the walls of said church we played '2 balls'! I would love to have the name of the church, should anyone remember it. My nan and grandad, Albert and Elizabeth Coy, shared the wall and every Sunday were blessed with (...Read full memory)

My parents got married here in 1922 and we, as a family, attended up to about 1946. It was an English speaking, Welsh, Presbyterian church then and I think finally ceased about 1950 due to lack of numbers. I have copies of the monthly journals for all 1921 which contain lists of members and (...Read full memory)
