SJ4287 : Woolton Hill Road

taken 2 years ago, near to Woolton, Liverpool, Great Britain

Woolton Hill Road
Woolton Hill Road
Woolton Hill Road was described in The Enclosure Act of 1805 as Red Brow, "40 ft wide, where hitherto the cows and sheep of Gateacre had drifted to their common pastures". Woolton Hill would have been common land of rough scrubland and red sandstone outcrops prior to becoming a favoured location for wealthy merchants to build grand country mansions. The house to the right is simply named "The Cottage" on early maps and is linked to the grand house Baycliff built in 1869-71 (now the residence of Liverpool's Anglican bishops known as Bishop's Lodge).
