A day out at the weekend, late June 2002. This is just near Liverpool Airport, so you get planes overhead every so often, which gives a bit of contrast.
|Front view (162Kb) Between the hedge and the house is a big ditch (now a garden). There is a bridge across to get to the house.|
|Palm cones (180Kb) Strange variety of palm plant that produces seeds like fir cones. Only found in Speke, and even then only directly beneath fir trees. Possibly some strange symbiosis going on? |
|Rear view (226Kb) With the rose garden in front of it.|
|Wall pegs (165Kb) An angled view of the wall, showing the dowels holding the walls together.|
|Date (227Kb) The inscription giving the date of building the main part of the hall and the bridge across. Taken from the bridge.|
