    the history

    Tucked away, just minutes away from the legendary Aintree racecourse, New Hall is a slice of Liverpool’s social history. A late Victorian estate, with properties both ready for commercial occupation and ripe for refurbishment, there’s real potential for a range of purposes.

    Conceived in 1888 and originally known as Fazakerley Cottage Home, New Hall was opened in 1890 to house children from the West Derby Workhouse. The estate was designed as a model village, with two rows of cottages, each named after a type of tree, either side of a grand avenue. The village was completed with a central hall, which acted as chapel and school, as well as a swimming pool, infirmary and lodges.




    the explore

    this popped up a while ago in leads and rumours, me and kevsy21 checked it out but found it locked up and alarmed to the hilt

    anyhow a permission visit was granted and off we went,however when we arrived on site we was told we couldnt go anywhere near the swimming baths or up into the clock tower due to pigeon waste and with me and kevsy21 being "sub contractors" sub contractors wasnt allowed in those places,which was a blow because id badly wanted to see up in the clock tower along with the on site swimming baths.

    with that said it was good to see inside ,more of liverpools history that im happy to have seen is always a bonus with me.

    also thanks to urbansplash and our guide tony for letting us in and opening up one of the cottages for us to photograph.

    explored with kevsy21.
