Next door to The Oldest House in Bootle.

This little house near the junction of Merton Road with Hawthorne Road is the oldest house in Bootle. The adjacent more modern house, now used as a solicitor, is dated 1773. The name Bootle comes from the Anglo Saxon "Bold" or "Botle" meaning a dwelling, it is mentioned in the Domesday Book and Merton Road was an ancient route from the shore to Walton-on-the-Hill. Bootle was originally a small rural hamlet built near the 'sand hills' or dunes of the river estuary with an abundant supply of fresh water from its springs. The settlement began to grow as a bathing resort for wealthy residents of Liverpool in the early 19th century.
