Houses on the promenade, Parkgate
The house on the left is dated 1727. In the 1700's Parkgate was a renowned terminal for packet ships carrying passengers to and from Dublin. Travellers would have to wait for a favourable wind, and so small businesses built up along the front to accommodate their wining and dining needs. Following the construction of a turnpike road connecting Chester to the Neston and
Parkgate area, along with a further road connecting Neston to the villages of Birkenhead and Tranmere and the Mersey Ferries, a number of grander homes were built for merchants who had shipping interests.
