I've always loved the houses at the Christ Church end of Merton Road.

I went around the small building to the right when it was offices.

This one's for sale at £125k. Should come with its own history book.

Dan. The Merton Road house brought back memories - close to the oldest house in Bootle. As a teenager, I recall tidying the garden and doing the paintwork (mostly black + white) there. A few metres up Merton Road, towards Christ Church, was a red public phone box. It was one of the few that worked in those days and I often called my judy (my wife of 40+ years) in Portsmouth, from there. Walshy.
