The picture on the left is entitled "A sketch of the Bull Inn around 1815 by J.Hindley". It appears on page 107 of 'Lost Manors'. In the foreground is the 'Creep Hole' pond, and on the left is Gateacre Chapel.

Our last two Newsletters have mentioned 'Lost Manors', which is the title of our member Stuart Rimmer's new book. Stuart has been delving into the Manor Court and other local records, and has uncovered an amazing amount of information about the many long-lost - as well as the few surviving - pubs of Little Woolton and neighbouring parts of Much Woolton and Childwall.

Stuart has also been reading through local newspapers, and his book includes accounts of a variety of misdeeds and tragic events, as well as some amusing stories. His researches have collected evidence about places like 'The Holt', 'The Lee' and 'The Grange' which were of great historical importance but whose ancient boundaries are now largely forgotten. Stuart has also come up with a new - and very convincing - explanation of the name 'Gateacre'. To find out more, come along to his talk!

Gateacre Chapel has adopted various 'Covid safe' procedures. Social distancing will be practised on the left-hand side of the chapel (nearest to the pulpit). Hand sanitising facilities will be available on entry. Face coverings are optional. In order to regulate the number of people attending, we have decided to make this event 'Gateacre Society members only' - though membership application forms will be available at the door for anyone wishing to join on the night.
