We are pleased to announce that the first three of our green Heritage Plaques were installed on Friday 9th March. They are on the Lock-up, the Monks' Well and the Picton Clock Tower, and the aim is to draw attention to Wavertree's wealth of local history. Another eight plaques will follow, we hope, over the next few months.

The plaques were manufactured locally - by Photocast Products Ltd of Speke - and paid for by the Wavertree Society using some of the proceeds from our book Discovering Historic Wavertree.
