Frank Hornby – Maghull’s most famous resident

The other day when I was at a Frank Hornby Trust meeting it became apparent that a friend of the Trust from Crosby had spent some time tidying up the grave of Frank Hornby in recent times so I went to go see what the present condition is.

Here it is in the closed graveyard of St. Andrews Church, Maghull.

It does not look bad at all and I hope that in due course there will be a storyboard at Maghull Station with a walking tour of places in the Town relevant to Frank Hornby. I am working on this project with the Trust, the marvelous Maghull Station Volunteers and Merseytravel.

Maghull’s almost hidden war memorial

As part of my theme for 2014 here is a shot close to home of the lych gate of St. Andrews Church Maghull which is in fact a war memorial in itself:-
