Allerton Towers
Allerton Towers
Formal avenue of holly and yew trees at Allerton Towers, only the gardens and a few derelict out-buildings remain of the original estate. Allerton, now a suburb of South Liverpool, is a very old settlement and is mentioned in the Domesday book. As a testament to the fabulous wealth that existed in Liverpool in the 19th century, Allerton boasted many private country estates and mansions, Allerton Towers being just one of them also Cleveley, Allerton Park, Allerton Priory, Greenhill and Allerton Beeches, which at the time were all in open countryside. Lords of the Manor at Allerton have been recorded since the 12th Century, the first being the Lathom Family, who lost the title to three other families over a period until the 14th Century, when a re-appearance saw them retain the control until 1623.
