The Wirral in 50 Buildings

The Wirral in 50 Buildings

Les Jones  (Author)
The towns and villages of the Wirral peninsula have a separate character to the rest of Cheshire and Merseyside as it is separated by the River Dee in the west and by the River Mersey in the east. Towns such as Wallasey and Birkenhead have a strong industrial heritage, particularly connected to the docks, New Brighton was developed as a coastal resort, but there are also rural towns and villages with picturesque buildings and large country houses.

Wirral in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating area through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, including less well known buildings tucked away, showing the changes that have taken place over the years. Gems include the mediaeval Birkenhead Priory, the magnificent early Victorian Hamilton Square, the world famous Port Sunlight with Lady Lever Art Gallery, warehouses by Telford at Ellesmere Port, churches by Pugin, Butterfield and Scott, Birkenhead Park, created by Paxton as the first municipal park in Britain and famously copied by New York, the lighthouse at New Brighton, an early mansion by Alfred Waterhouse, venues frequented by The Beatles, and many more.

The book will appeal to all those who live in the Wirral or visit the area.
