    An earlier Thatto Heath Station?

    By Boris,
    I bought a copy of the 1891 map of Thatto Heath from Francis Friths'. I'm amazed to see that the station is shown in a different location to the one we all know. It depicts it on on the land between Elephant Lane, Thatto Heath Road road bridge, Leicester Street and the old Step Bridge. In other words, it appears to have been on the Nutgrove side of the road bridge and directly opposite the library across the railway tracks. It's heavily hatched on the map but despite that, the words 'Thatto

    Bridge Street, St Helens

    By Alan,
    An article elsewhere on this website about Tyrers made me wonder, why is Bridge Street so named? My memory of the street from the 1950s is that it went from Church Street by the old market down to the start of Liverpool Road. I cannot recall a bridge being there unless there was originally one over the brook or canal

    3rd West Lancashire Field Ambulance RAMC

    Dave Risley
    By Dave Risley,
    I'm researching for a book telling the story of 3rd West Lancashire Field Ambulance (WLFA), an RAMC unit based at Croppers Hill. Formed in 1908 as part of the Territorial Force, served in the Great War, disbanded in 1922. During the Great War it was known as 1/3rd WLFA, after 2/3rd (later 64th FA), 3/3rd (later 65th FA) and 4/3rd (a training/reserve line) were formed. If anyone has any info, photos, etc of these units or men who served with them I would be pleased to hear from you. Dave Ris
