DIRTBUSTERS CARPET UPHOLSTERY CLEANERS IN CHILDWALL LIVERPOOL.
I have cleaned carpet’s and couches in most streets in Childwall – Liverpool L16. If you live in Childwall and would like to have your carpets or upholstery deep cleaned to the base then just call me – Dave on 01514481797. Just let me know what you need cleaning – a rough size will do, and whether you have fabric or leather that needs a clean. The more you have cleaned the cheaper it can work out too.
TODAY I THOUGHT I WOULD PUT TOGETHER A SHORT BLOG ON THE HISTORY OF CHILDWALL IN SOUTH LIVERPOOL.
Childwall is an area in the South end of Liverpool. It is surrounded by the suburbs of Wavertree, Belle Vale, Mossley Hill, Bowring Park and Broadgreen. The last time Childwall’s population was measured was back in 2008 and was read as being just over 14,000.
Childwall isn’t situated too far from Liverpool city centre, its just six miles away. It’s also just a minute away from the beginning (or end whichever way you look at it) of the M62.
You know you’re in Childwall when you notice the large roundabout know locally as ‘The Fiveways’. This is one of the busiest roundabouts in the city and some patience is needed here at rush hours!
There are very few terraced houses in Childwall, most homes in this area are made up of semi detached as well as detached houses. Childwall has plenty of green spaces such as Childwall woods.
Childwall actually remained a very small hamlet right up until the beginning of the 20th Century, commanding impressive views across large areas of Lancashire and Cheshire as well as the Mersey. After the two World Wars, it grew as a prosperous suburb.
The Childwall Abbey hotel that gets traced back in history to the 15th century is the oldest part of Childwall.
Before this and surrounding areas became built up, they were made up of mosses, peats and moors and was a very watery place. We can see evidence of this today in places such as ‘Well Lane’, Childwall Valley Road is flooded fairly frequently and Score lane gardens are often filled with large pools of water.
It was back in 1965 that some workers found a stepped well at the junction of Well Lane Childwall Lane which they later covered up.
‘Childwall Brook’ is an area that springs up between Score lane and Well lane. This is marked on ancient maps as ‘Monks Bath’. This used to flow towards Jacksons Pond and is known as ‘Cistern Pit’, this is now covered by playing fields.
A NEWER CHILDWALL
Just off Well lane a train track once existed in 1879. Once upon a time, this was part of the Liverpool loop line. This was closed down after just a short while as there wasn’t enough demand for the service.
By 1928 Childwall really had grown into a suburb, streets started to pop up such as Dunbabin Road and Terence Road. Dual carriageways were built, considering car transport had only been around for twenty years was great planning. Childwall continues to grow with new homes being built all the time.
