'The Hollows'

Post by Andy on Thu Mar 24, 2011 3:39 am

Hi All

I am looking for information about the small area on the corner of Cross Lane/Stanton Road, Bebington, which is known as 'The Hollows'. It was obviously the site of a fairly large, detached house, as there are substantial stone gate posts at both entrances to the site. Does anyone know anything about the former house and its owners?

A few years late, but you may get to read this. I lived on the Stanton estate in the 70's and 80's. The older residents who had moved there when the estate was new told me that the stone wall along Cross Lane and down Stanton Road was the boundary for Stanton Farm and the Gate posts were the original ones, though not necessarily in the original places. The Hollows was said to be the site of an ammunitions dump that exploded. The lip or brow around The Hollows was a lot more pronounced in the 70's before the council started to level it off to make way for car parking. Cross Lane was also the route for the Tram that used to run to Bromborough (1830's) which set of from Fir Tree Cottages. Hope you get to read this.
