Liscard Hall, Central Park
Liscard Hall, Central Park
In the early nineteenth century, Liscard Hall (then called Moor Heys House) and the surrounding parkland was home of Sir John Tobin, ship owner, merchant, African trader and one-time Mayor of Liverpool. On the death of his successor, son-in-law Harold Littledale in 1889, Wallasey Local Board bought the estate and opened it to the public on Whit Monday 1891. The building is disused and in disrepair having been used as a science and art college until 1982.
In the early hours of 7th of July 2008 this building was set ablaze, possibly by vandals, and has since been demolished. LinkExternal link
