    I was told about this yesterday by a friend of mine who works at the ticket office at Central Station. He told me that the Liverbird used to be blue which it shows on here and not many believe it.He told me to get a picture quick as its flaking away. This used to be covered but for some reason it's on show. Echo Daily Post on Shaw St by Robbob 2010, on Flickr Echo Daily Post on Shaw St by Robbob 2010, on Flickr

    Phyll the skill is tremendous but being alongside the unit does not help you appreciate the bells. The page below is the actual Lowe House Carillion being played with some of the recording being taken outside so you can hear the tune. https://www.stmaryslowehouse.org/fullscreen-page/comp-j7t0hgf0/e04cad83-085d-4126-9449-f6cbdb77bfcc/0/%3Fi%3D0%26p%3Ddupnj%26s%3Dstyle-j81jxbgl NSSO, I was in the choir between 1952-60. Could it be your dad was on the altar at the same period?

    You probably won't see any work vehicles, they are on holiday! They usually spend a few weeks each summer going round working out the best places to rip off next, There's a large traveller camp in Blackpool, in winter it's full, in summer it's almost deserted. Incidentally has anyone heard all the BS about the arrests made over that brewery that got trashed? Apparently the police have arrested, 3 men and a 16 year old boy, wow that's a huge number of arrests, considering there was about a hundred of the thieving swines at the brewery, what's the betting they get off with it, I bet we don't hear of any more getting dragged in. It seems they are some kind of protected species, they can go around doing whatever they want, and get away with it, look at thatincident when that old bloke killed one, there was bugger all done about them making threats, or leaving piles of flowers outside the old guy's house, but when the locals threatened to turn nasty the police threatened to lock them up. Sorry for the rant, it's just these scumbags want eradicating, If I had my way I'd be building a bloody big gas chamber.

    The other week I was given some programmes that belonged to a former Saints player. One was the 1961 Challenge cup final. I was made up when I opened it as it was signed by all the Saints players.

    This church is located on Westfield Street at the beginning of what is the Eccleston Ward. Everyone from St.Helens either knows or passes it as it is built from a striking red brick. The Church was founded in 1839 but I know that a lot of people have never actually been inside. Here are some images that I took during an official "open day".

    It used to be a depot for the Liverpool Echo and Post. They had printing machines that could be seen through the open door. The machines only printed the "Stop Press" on papers already done. The stop press was on the back page of the Echo and usually had sports results including the racing results. In the fifties lots of people backing horses illegally would to get the results.

    Just came across this piece of info whilst researching someone else. It doesn't mention anything about your Heyes family but gives the history of how Prescot got a county coroner and a few of the sad kind of cases they would have dealt with, a bit of fleshing out of the story so to speak. https://www.hslc.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/86-3-Bailey.pdf This is a good site for some back history of the area too if you can be bothered to trawl through the bits they've put online. Just shorten the link to just the org.uk bit and you will find them

    That is what is so frustrating about going back until only parish records are used, its a bit of a guessing game, some churches recorded all sorts of detail and some hardly any. It pays to absolutely know the area you are researching in, be aware who else is around and to try to account for all the different possible births you have found by tracing them through BMDs and luckily early census or even more luckily, wills added 8 minutes later Marriage: 18 Oct 1819 St Peter and St Paul, Ormskirk, Lancashire, England John Heyes - Prescot Ann Wright - This Parish Witness: Mary Wright; Robert Burchall Married by Licence by: Joshua Thomas Horton, Vicar Register: Marriages 1813 - 1827, Page 109, Entry 327 Source: LDS Film 1849664 Baptism: 1 Nov 1798 St Mary the Virgin, Prescot, Lancashire, England Ann Wright - Daur. of Harvey Wright & Mary Born: 1 Oct Abode: Prescot Occupation: Atty. at Law Register: Baptisms 1766 - 1809, Page 148, Entry 13 Source: LDS Film 1657583 You may find the following helpful http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/ http://www.prescot.org/?page_id=5184 added 9 minutes later For instance http://www.prescot.org/?q=heyes&root=2&t=-1&page_id=1301&sort=1&ex=1&sex=0 added 28 minutes later No bap though, so was he born elsewhere or was he bap in a church with no records online perhaps ie Methodist or Catholic or could be one that records online don't go back that far added 42 minutes later What about this one ( I can send the image if you want it) Bishops Transcript Huyton 1793 John Farnworth Heyes son of James and Peggy Hayes of Knowsley Born April 12 1793 and Christened May 13 1793 Registered May 13 by one Roger Winstanley added 43 minutes later I'm going on the census details for the date of birth added 44 minutes later And Peggy is the nickname for Margaret remember added 54 minutes later There's also a death registered in a Huyton church for a John Heyes of Knowsley buried June 29th 1851 aged 58 ?

    Thats the one Phyll and I passed it yesterday, its doesnt even look as good as that, its a des res pidgion loft at the moment, theyve just left it to rot really. I was only thinking yesterday what could they possibly do with it, they could have used it as community market ie for car boots or craft fairs or as exhibition space, office space even put the museum in there and expanded on it but I suppose it would have cost too much money, then they go and spend 5.9 million of lottery funds (just to start up a kitty mind) on one painting, makes you SICK!

I read up on it once, the Daily Post and Echo bought it from Tinlings Printers probably because they printed a rival newspaper there and they wanted it shut down.later they sold it to Knowsley council I think
