A new book, out now

Stuart Rimmer gave us a talk in 2018 about the Old Inns, Taverns and Beer Houses of Woolton. Since that time, he has extended his researches to cover Gateacre and Childwall. The end product is much more than just a history of our local pubs. It's an account of the development of the townships of Little Woolton and Childwall, as revealed by the old Manorial Court records. Where did the name 'Gateacre' come from? Why was Little Woolton so much bigger in area than Much Woolton? You'll need to read Stuart's book to find his answers!

We are hoping that Stuart will give us a 'live' talk - and bring along copies of his book for sale - in Gateacre Chapel on 28th June 2021. See our next Newsletter for confirmation and further details.
