Here’s some great environmental/green news for Maghull – see link above
I covered this story a while back – here’s the link back to that article:-
So congratulations are due to the intrepid Merseyside North Sustrans volunteers for winning the top prize. It will be interesting to see how their project develops as this access point to the Cheshire Lines/Trans Pennine Trail has long been a mess.
By the way I found this old photo amongst my collection. It is taken from the very spot that the volunteers are going to improve looking up at the old Cheshire Lines Sefton Lane railway bridge parapet. Of course that is now long gone with the bridge gap itself also filled in. All that’s left is a hump in Sefton Lane. The photo is from the early 1980’s and the people in it are Marie Borland, Andrew Beattie (sadly passed away) and Dave Roscoe. Marie and Andrew were both Maghull Town councillors at the time.
