Falkner Square
Falkner Square
Falkner Square is one of the oldest public open spaces in Liverpool and is named after Edward Falkner of Fairfield who, at the age of 28, became Sheriff of Lancashire following a successful career in the army. Falkner later invested in land and property and in the 1820's built a square of elegant town houses surrounding a private park on the outskirts of the city. This became known as Falkner's Folly as for some years many of the houses stood empty because it was considered too far out of town and transport up the hill was difficult. Eventually the square became fashionable but the houses and garden deteriorated in the 1970's as the area became rundown. Both houses and gardens have now been restored, the gardens are accessible to the public and are a popular place for students and workers from the University on sunny days.
