Gates of Calderstones Park
Gates of Calderstones Park
Detail of the gateposts of Calderstones Park, besides the obvious home of the Calder Stones, the park is popular for its botanic gardens, lake, 700 year old tree (The Allerton Oak) and annual tennis tournament. The figures on the gateposts represent the god Atlantis and were originally located on a building adjacent to Liverpool Town Hall which stood from 1861-1928. When the building was demolished, the statues which were carved by Edwin Stirling, were rescued and relocated to the Harthill entrance to Calderstones Park.
