Norris Green Park
Norris Green Park
The name Norris has been associated with Liverpool since the Norman times, mainly linked with Speke Hall. The park houses the ruin of Norris Green, the original name of the grand mansion built by the Norris family SJ3993 : Norris Green in the fields and pastureland near West Derby. The park was created from the gardens and grounds of the mansion, though you would be hard pushed to find flowers other than weeds there today. Norris Green gave its name to the vast, featureless council housing estate built to ease the housing crisis of the 1920's on land given to the city by Lord Derby of Knowsley Hall. He donated the land on the provision that no public houses were to be built within the estate.
