I loved Moreton when I was a kid. Dad used to take me in the car. Not been for a long while, I must get back over there one day soon.

Oh, that would be nice! I'll be off work in a few weeks.
However, you have given me a flash back. The road from the railway station. I seem to be remembering walking up and back that road with my mum and dad. There was a lot of that climbing weed, (is it poison ivy?) growing up hedges and concrete walls. There was also a bus stop. And...taa daa....Cadbury's chocolate factory!  Shocked  Can remember the end of a rainbow being in the grounds of it! I don't suppose the factory is still there now is it?
In fact, just going over to google it......
Barbie

Oh, I do remember the windmill too.

factory is still there but its a tea factory now, no longer many hedges all built up now,there where quite a few wild plants along that road , The one you are calling ivy i think you mean Bineweed its very similar to Ivy but has large trumpet like white flowers. that road was just a country lane just wide enough for the bus up untill the late Fifties
Barbie

Ah yes, bindweed. Dad used to tell me not to touch it. I assumed as a kid it was poisonous. Now, I was walking up and down that road in the 60's. I can remember a hut sort of shop, I think.
Barbie

Oh!  Shocked  It isn't anything remotely like how I remember! (Looked on google maps)

yes you are right and at the bottom on the right there was a small fairground ,
There was also a small fairground on the left at the top of shore road thats the road that used to run to the sea wall just in front of the lighthouse.
the lighthouse actually has a web  site with live web cam views here

I don't remember a fairground. Thanks for the link mate  Wink

I have another flash back. Down on the beach there were huge concrete things built in the war time, they were to stop any invaders coming ashore.....or so my dad told me! Was he kidding, were they a breakwater?

no he wasn't they were called tank traps their real name was dragons teath.if you ever go down Dungon lane in speke there are lots in the old salt works, there used to be machine gun posts on top of the sea wall in Moreton but i think the have all been removed,more of our history destroyed,

What a great thread !

Smashing pixs Jan and priceless reminices by you Scousemouse, and Barbie, I have similar memories to you of long Sunny days out there when  just a kid.

I was last over there about three years ago and was saddened to find it so changed.and mainly now used for Dog walking. The walk down that Road past Cadburys is permanently etched in mind
Those days out at Moreton were simple times ,cheap days out and  I wouldnt change them for the world

Beeb, yep! If money really tight, then no New Brighton.....
and yes, that road passed the choccy factory is also etched in my mind. I have to go back and take a gander but, I'm fearfull that it will shock me and ruin my memories.
