The picture above is entitled "A sketch of the Bull Inn around 1815 by J.Hindley". It appears on page 107 of 'Lost Manors'. In the foreground is the 'Creep Hole' pond, and on the left is Gateacre Chapel.

It's 'third time lucky', as our previous attempts to hold this talk (in June and September 2021) were foiled by Covid-19. Stuart Rimmer has been delving into the Manor Court and other local records, and has uncovered an amazing amount of information about the many long lost - as well as the few surviving - pubs of Little Woolton and neighbouring parts of Much Woolton and Childwall. He has been reading through local newspapers, and his book includes accounts of a variety of misdeeds and tragic events, as well as a few amusing stories. His researches have also collected evidence about places like The Holt, The Lee and The Grange, which were of great historical importance but whose ancient boundaries are now largely forgotten.

Stuart's book - entitled 'Lost Manors' - was published in March 2021 and is available from his website
price £12.99 (plus £2 delivery if ordering from outside the local area). He will also, we hope, be bringing plenty of copies along on 13th March!

Gateacre Chapel's 'Covid safe' procedures have now been relaxed, but if you wish to wear a mask you are welcome to do so. In order to regulate the number of people attending, the event will be open to Gateacre Society members only - though membership application forms will be available at the door for anyone wishing to join (or to renew their subscription) on the day.
