Kirkby – Maghull – Town centers both looking for a better look

When I first saw the headline (see link below) I wondered how a council could ‘buy’ a town but then realised the headline had ‘center’ missing from it.

I then wondered if it was Sefton Council buying Maghull Square but the photo did not look right.

Of course it’s Kirkby town center that the Echo article is all about, a saga that goes back many, many years indeed.

And then I thought back about Maghull Square and the long promised refurb’s that go back many, many years via different owners and wondered what it will take…………..

This is Maghull Square in the 1970’s but the buildings are still pretty much as was. It was built in the 1960’s. Photographer unknown.
