Village centre, West Derby
As one of the eight hundreds of Lancashire, West Derby was far more important than the little hamlet of Liverpool. The name Derby means good hunting place and at the time of the Danish settlers there was a huge forest here. A Saxon fort stood here for 200 years, followed by a Norman castle which was held by Richard I in 1197, holding a garrison of 10 knights and crossbowmen and 140 foot soldiers. The castle was allowed to decay when Liverpool's fortress was built and now only a garden marks its position.
