Once again we were blessed with beautiful weather for our third walk of the 2018 programme. Amongst the stops on this slightly shorter walk around the gardens, the 35 visitors heard about the young North End boy who came across an unexploded bomb with devastating consequences, Birkenhead’s first ever Labour Party MP and the Birkenhead born Bishop of Shrewsbury.
The walk finished with a stop at the grave of the man who, more than any other individual saved Bidston Hill for the people of Wirral to enjoy forever as a public open space.
As always, the Friends were in the Chapels to show visitors round and to look at the display of old photographs from our archives.
