Where was I Today

Here is one of the places I visited today as part of Heritage Week

..anyone want to try a guess as to where I was ?


Barbie

Croxteth Hall?
brainbox

No Barbie , it wasn't Croxteth Hall....I've never ever been there.. I dont know why ...it just seems to have escaped Me.

A little clue to where I was is in the Letters on the Plaque high up above the Weird Marquee they installed for the Day...There was a beautiful Ornate Fireplace behind it too....You will need to zoom in on the letters.
Barbie

I can't see the letters so one more random possibility Blue Coat Chambers?
brainbox

Oh Sorry ,bout that. It probably is a bit Hazy. The Letters are  T P T
and as an extra clue on the wall opposite out of view is another plaque of a Stag.....come to think of it Croxteth Hall does have some distant Past links to the area of a whole.

I'll tell you the answer if you cant get it !

Laughing

heres the other half of the room...the Stag Motif is just above head height at the back.

Its Toxteth Town Hall off Park Road. It was their Heritage Open Day today.
The Stag plaque was given by Lord Derby when the Hall opened in !866 . He was the Lord of the Manor of Toxteth and the Stag is from his family coat of Arms . Earl Sefton of Croxteth Park also held Toxteth sometime in the 13th Century.....Right History lesson Done...I went somewhere Else interesting today aswell...it saves on Lecky at home    !

Laughing  Laughing Good boy.
Ok great info there. Can you tell me then about the names by any chance. TOXteth, CROXteth, do they mean anything in particular?
brainbox

Yes Babs They are modern derivations of Viking Names

Tox Teth   is derived from the Viking Lord Toki and Staith is derived from the viking for Stave .

A viking lord Toki came across from the Wirral  and claimed the land by the river  [Now Toxteth] by sticking his Stave into the ground.

the Land was thus known as Toki-Staith......modern : Toxteth

I've got a list of all the former Viking Names and all the former Anglo Saxon Names of Places in and around Liverpool,,its interesting to see how the names evolved in to their present form.
I will scan it and post it here either late on tonight or tomorrow morning.

Excellent Barbie,, spot on,its along the wall on Wapping and its the remains of the Stanchion supports set into the wall that formerly supported the LOR.  There are about a dozen of them in total


Barbie

Yes, I was checking them out about 2+ plus years ago.

he ! he ! Too late now, I am a Kiss and Tell Kind of fella Barbie.  Laughing

Right !  before this Thread degenerates into Mayhem I will disclose the location . ..The Cross is in the small Chapel in St Nicholas's Church , and it is reputed to have been knocked together by the Priest the day after the Church was Almost completely destroyed in the Blitz. The two pieces of timber it is made from are charred  remnants of the roof that the Priest picked up off the floor.and nailed into the form of a cross. It has been kept as Symbolic reminder of that-fateful Day.
Barbie

Thanks for the info, I love it. I've not been inside the church yet.

Churches tend to close their doors and bolt them when they see me coming...
brainbox

Barbie that Church is open to the public to view most days of the year between Services etc. I've bee inside three times this year and noticed different thing each time I was in there. The Gardens are a nice place to relax too if you are down there or looking for a breather between walking .
Put it on your to Do list......Its growing  ! he ! he !
MOJO

Good post B.B.! I've been inside for a carol concert,but didn't get much chance to look round!
brainbox

heres a couple more from inside

Hard to believe this But......

These Commemorative Plaques were rescued from the Skip and brought to St Nicholas's when the Cunard Buildings were being Refurbished.....Not sure of when . I will try and find out






MOJO

I've seen broken plaques in a skip,before now,which seems quite sad! They're so important in their day,then as time goes by.... worthless to many! Reminds me of the rescued school/college honours boards,in Dr.Duncan's pub, not the best place for them,but at least they survived! I'd be interested how you get on B.B. Smile
Jan

Great pic's and info BB ,,, would of loved to have seen the names on the plaques,,,have you any close up's ,, looking forward to where you are going next ,,, hmmmmm.....hahaha...Jan x Laughing
brainbox

Thanks Jan.yes I have some other individual Shotsof the plaques that are just about readable if you zoom in, I will post them up later .
