Parkgate History & Heritage Trail

The Parade

Hazardous Bus Route

Here we can see an old double decker bus making quite a splash whilst driving past the Donkey Stand at high tide.  Lucky no one is sitting on the benches!

In the foreground the entrance to the Red Lion pub looks exactly the same as now. 

Note the Walkers Falstaff Brewery sign and the now unique Walkers of Warrington cubed gas light.  

What No Pavement, where did people walk?

This picture is taken looking north along the parade from in front of the restaurant called No1 Mostyn Square.

The building jutting out in the distance is the house called "Overdee".  

Notice the boats at anchor and the un-surfaced road and lack of pavement.  With the lack of traffic people were free to walk in the road. Not recommended now a days!
