    Eccleston Grange to be demolished

    Eccleston Grange on Prescot Road is about to be demolished. It is owned by Alfred H Knight who obtained it from Pilkington some years ago.   Previously Pilks analytical labs were in Eccleston Grange before they moved to Lathom, I worked  at the Grange for a short time in the 1960s. I think Lord Pilkington was born in the building and unfortunately it is not a listed building.

    Garden opposite St Teresa's in Hewitt Avenue

    By Billychris,
    Yesterday during one of my walkabouts I ambled through a small park/gardens . It runs between Hewitt Avenue ( more or less opposite St Teresas) and Marsden Avenue . Only a small area of greenery but next to path through it there are about 10 old gravestones , difficult to read but thought I could see 1832 on one of them .  Was this piece of land once the cemetery for the church ?
