COMMENTS: Hi. I am not sure if you still remember me but 13 years ago, together with Hamilton, Isabel and Martin we lived there along Eastham Avenue. We are known as the root groups and we helped in All Saints and the Church of Saint Aidans.

I felt so glad when I chanced upon your website. It brings back old memories of my life there. I have no contact with the rest of the Root groups or people there. But I will never forget you all. I am now a lawyer and I am working for the government of the Republic of the Philippines and I hope that someday I will have a chance visit Speke so that I can see all the lovely people there.


I will appreciate to renew communication with your parish ones more. Thank you for everything.

COMMENTS: Hello again Lynne,so glad to have found your site again.I do enjoy reading of so many peoples experiences in our "little hamlet"

I particularly loved carol forsyth,s memories,I remember her working in the co~op. She was lovely.I wonder if she remembers the scruffy boy who was always on messages for his mother.I.still remember the divi number 10538

Does anyone remember the vast fields of daffodils along hale rd in the spring,the trek to luddons shop in hale on sundays was always made more pleasant at the sight of these

I would like to know more about the critchley family who were prominent landowners or farmers in the area? perhaps one of the family could contact me. Is mrs Rives still alive?

all for now, bye

Sorry about the problems with the site. It has been moved to a new address by Freeserve, now Wanadoo, and the address is http://speke.mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/index.html


I'm taking the opportunity to separate it into three sites to allow me to upload more photos and some census information in the future and I'm hoping it will be ready next weekend.


In the meantime, the original site is at the above address.


Sorry for any inconvenience!

COMMENTS: Hy Lynne , what a great surprise to see your website , all the memories come flooding back !

I lived at 10 Fenton Close from 1945 to around 1957 and then went to 94 All Saints Road until 1964 . I was confirmed in All saints church when I was about 12years old . I have a sisier Val, who now lives in Australia and gave me your website . I have a brother Rod who would remember Joey Dilworth , Michael Murray and Edie Holmes . he lives in Australia now . I have a younger brother as well, Ian who now lives in Derbyshire .

My dad worked at Dunlops and Dista all his working life and is now almost 98 years of age .

I often think of our childhood in Speke and it was a brilliant place to live . We had the biggest bonfires in Fenton Close on Bonfire night and think we " borrowed " a lot of the firewood from Fenton green . We seemed to have seasons for different games , either top and whip , skipping with a very large rope from the docks ! Marbles or ollies as we called them and Yes ! I think the sun shone every day in the summer .

I worked in the Co op on Western Avenue when I left school and Berties as well , plus the airport . Also a shop at the " new shops" called Irwins , which got taken over by a new firm called Tesco . When we heard it was to be a self service , we all said it would never work !

Its very sad to hear the shops have gone in western Avenue , Jack allens and the chippie . Does anyone remember Stevies on Hale Road , always handy for sweets before we went to the woods .

Thanks for the memories !

Love from Carol .

Great site. I was born in Woodend Ave, lived in Harefield rd. Went to stocktonwood and central ave school.Does anyone remember wiggies orchard, it belonged to my grandparents, many of the kids used to raid it. Does anyone remember the youth club in the huts on the playground of Stocktonwood, the woman who ran it was called Daisy. Its amazing reading some of the articles they bring back many forgotten memories.

I lived at 47 Greyhound Farm Road from 1942 to 1951 when we went to live in a place called Halewood ( a sleepy village then). I went to Stockton Wood Road School, the teachers I remember being Kneale, Singleton, Perkins, Cresswell (all very handy with corporal punishment). I also remember all of us playing in the woods next to All Saints Church and being chased by The Vicar, Rev. Wade on his motorised cycle. Truly, the happiest days of my life. My friends were Kenny Pemberton, Kenny Parr, Arthur Henwood, Brian Threlfall and Alfie Riley. Where are they now???

COMMENTS: What a great site. Just spent an Hour and a half looking through it. Mum & Dad were married in All Saints in 1951. I Lived in Speke for a short while in 68/69. Used to attend the Youth Club, first at All Saints, then the amalgamated one at St Aidens, in the days of Trevor Mains, Nicholas Paterson and Michael Whatmore. (Trev the Rev, Nick the Vic and Michael the Deciple). with Alan Foster, Arthur Moore, Dave Jones, Ian Pimlett, Steve Berridge, Margie Weston, Susan Parry, Lesley Dunbavin, Collette Isaacs and heaps more that this old brain cant recall. It would be nice to get in touch with them again. I know Arthur lives in Birkenhead now. Us Walkers used to live at 70 Linner Road from about 1939 or so till my Father Charlie Walker finally emigrated to Australia in 88. My best regards to everyone in Speke.

COMMENTS: Hi Lynn, not visited for some time. Read all 56 pagaes. Very impressive to see how far people have travelled. Good to see some signs of progrewss such as new schools; hope they're not being built by Jarvis or anyone else under the PFI scheme. Very warm feeling and many memories have come alive. Still feel sad about loss of Crescent Library; many happy years there developing a love of books. Also remember Sea Cadets of which I was a member in erly & mid 6)'s. Called TS Conway and I think unit 467. Remember a Captain Nookie (?) who did a lot of refurbishment work there. Also remember being scared out of my wits one day playing in woods near All Saints. Looked over the wall and saw a bloodstained comb. Ran like the proverbial clapers. Speke Hall was also a spooky place to visit on an autumn or winter afternoon. Believe I saw a ghost in a window when visiting with family. Only realised this when I discovered we were the ony visitors inside. Could have been a trick of the light.

What has happpened to the park. Does the new school mean the loss of a park. Good to see Dungeon Lane being refurbished. Cottage Shop was not the ony place open on sunday. There was a garage up near Dungeon Lane, near Bridge Lane(?) which was ok for people up that end of the estate

Don't think Michael Coleman lived in Wellbrook Green, perhaps Wellbrook Close. I can still name all the families and children in Wellbrook Green while we lived there from 53-64. Does anyone remember the variety of mobile shops such as Mr. Leckies, Bill Websters, the butchers and Mr. Kaye, the sweetman. Caravan at Western Ave. was known as Butlers Pantry and I've had many a cup of tea and cigarrette on a cold winters night. Remember names from Western Ave such as Robin Fricka, Carl Stedman, Rhoda Crocket, Colin Adams Also names such as Billy Coventry, Margaaret Kent, Bas Long, Anne Brown

Scarey to think of all the chemical wastes we played on at Oglet Shore (The Onk) There was also another way down to the river at the back of Speke Hall which now seems to be blocked off when I visited the place a year of so ago.

By the way Lynn, met up with Vivian at my sisters wedding some time ago and she reminded me of stories of my childhood which I had forgetten such as walking to Garston Market with her and your aunt to buy cracked eggs and Lancashire Cheese.

Anyway, I think that's enough for now. Really excellent to see way you have developed the site. Many thanks
