Wavertree

I've not had much to do with the area of Wavertree until this past year or two. I've started to walk around the area and I like what I see.
I found this on the net a few days ago and I have to go see it! Have anyone seen it? Is it still there? This photo was taken in 2007. The info that goes with it is:

This is Waterloo Street at the side of Jenkins, Funeral Directors, seen here:
I was astounded when I saw this wall!
It was only after being alerted to it by Editorctrip that I found it.
It looks like those windows, (or a window and a door), could be Elizabethan, which age is extremely rare in Liverpool.


I simply have to see it. If anyone has anymore info on it please share!  Very Happy

I know Waterloo Street Barbie and Park there occasionally but I have never noticed that wall..good find. !... It is definitely part of an older building or boundary wall of some sort.  will be great to find out more.
Cool

Barbie

Well googled !  Not much of a Manor though is it Barbie...maybe gets its name from a building standing there previous to them.

Found it barbie...





. Waterloo Road (former Dairy wall)

Here you can see: Mr B. Jenkins of B. Jenkins & Sons, Established 1880, 4 Church Road North, Wavertree L15 6TF.

Explaining that the outside wall (Waterloo Street) that is part of his premises was once a dairy, the lower part of the wall dates back some 400 years, while on top of that dates back 200 years. The milk was passed out through widows to its customers.

Me Ma' used to live in the end house on the right,next door to the "Coffee House" pub'! It belonged to the brewery,and was rented,but was offered for sale,in the 80's,for only £9,000,but they declined!!! Shocked
                                                                                          Interesting post,and info' all.,as I've often wondered about the history of that wall,as I lived round the corner in Wavertree gardens,briefly!
Barbie

Nice one Beeb, that confirms it's age. a dairy eh? imagine them tiny windows? Fantastic.  I so have to go see it soon.
Mojo, she should have bought, imagine how much it worth now!
Alice

Just found out that my cousin had ancestors living in Frederick Grove which is on the other side of the High Street.  They moved from Waterloo Street.
