PEARSONS OF LIVERPOOL - "After the War Was Over" is the most fascinating publication produced, and its content is unique! In over 200 images, it uses hitherto classified photographs to present a view of the secret goings-on around Edge Hill.
Assembling crated vehicles sent across the Atlantic in the convoys, an army of engineers aided by old men, young boys and women, put together a vast fleet of military might, initially from Canada and then the USA.
Here, in bombed-out factories and on waste ground around Smithdown Lane, Overbury Street, Crown Street, Queensland Street and Falkner Street, a vast fleet of military vehicles were erected in great secrecy.

SAVE CHILDWALL CHURCH - Save Childwall Church was a campaign set up immediately after hearing of All Saints Church, Childwall’s plans to build over 60 marked graves for an extension to the Church.
The proposals for All Saints’, in Childwall, involve building a new extension in the form of a church rotunda at the Grade I-listed building and modernising the church hall.
But the plan has provoked opposition among residents in the picturesque conservation area because it will also involve building four detached houses on vicarage land and the possibility of several graves being disturbed in the churchyard.
Objectors said the plans would radically change the appearance of the medieval building. Heavily campaigning, we can now report that this proposal has now been stopped.
