Stadt Moers Park
Stadt Moers Park
This part of Stadt Moers Park is called Tushingham after Henry Tushingham who founded a brickworks here in the 1890's, the bricks being made from locally extracted clay and shale. Prior to this there had been a colliery on the land. The brickworks closed in the 1970's and the land was sold to Knowsley council who used it as a landfill site until 1983 when it was decided to reclaim the land and transform it into a country park. The park is accessed by a tunnel beneath the Liverpool to Manchester railway line which can be seen to the left of the photo.
